I'm a single Mom.  I work all night as a Paramedic and chase my two daughters all day so I don't sleep.  I miss when I could just go out and run every day. It will happen again.  I'm retiring at 50 with my public service pension.  11 more years and Mama is gonna rest.

Total Distance

7:28 AP.  Got up and ran 16 on the river to start the year and finish off the week.  It was 7 degrees when I started and I'm glad the skin on my face is still intact.  I felt super sluggish and tight at first but things loosened up after, oh, 10 miles and then I picked it up to get my average down.  Splits 7:53, 7:52, 7:45, 7:33, 7:36, 7:36, 7:28, 7:35, 7:36, 7:10, 7:16, 7:13, 7:09, 7:11, 7:14, 7:12.   Watched the frosty 5k today and got to see some tribe members I haven't seen in a while--Carlos(wassup my brother?!), Tex, Stephanie(nice talking to her Dad), and Eddy.  Got pics of everyone finishing and Lacy won with a new PR.  Now that I was thoroughly frozen I went home to defrost my hands and eat.

Solid MP work there at the end. All your runs seem to be at awesome paces these days.

60 degrees to 7 degrees? were you just pulling our leg the other day? got to love the winter running!! people keep asking me, don't your lungs burn? nope, everything else but, you know what I mean. seriously tough to not dart inside after such a stood outside in your sweat freezing? nice of you to be there for everyone. I was such a lammo and couldn't even run New Year's Day. No TMs and less than zero degrees out and a 13 hour shift. Blah. what is the countdown?
