What a monumental week!
Someone (ahem....ME!) had a milestone birthday, and Momma N did her damnedest to put a kink in the celebration. Care to hear what some of her antics were? Read on.....
Monday morning, we awoke to several inches of heavy, wet snow on the ground, and streets were a mess. School had a 2-hour delay and the snow plows were out in full force. Having done a 9-mile run the previous day, I only needed a short shakeout run...and since it was Monday, well you know my routine:
|Leaving snow prints.....|
In recent years, March 14th has become known as Pi Day....you know, a tribute to that number (3.14) used to compute the area of a circle. Having been a total math dork as a kid, I would have really embraced that notion. Now days? I'm a runner dork, so I do a 3.14 "Pi run" every year on my birthday. This year was the coldest birthday I've had in several years (Thank You, Momma N), but there was ample sunshine and the wind was calm.
|Another successful Pi Run|
*30 flights of single-step running
*10 flights of side-step climbing (5 "facing" left and 5 "facing" right)
*20 flights of single step running
*a very s.l.o.w. walk back home
|Yes, you can do outside stair work in the snow...|
|Hopefully my last snow run for several months|
|go green or go home|
|Yay for awesome running/blogger friends!!!|
|Doesn't everyone wear the event jacket for the shakeout run the next morning?|
My stair training will continue for a few more weeks as I prepare for the Fight for Air Climb (April 9th in Des Moines). If you're interested in donating to the cause, my fundraising page is HERE.
