We had a very mild fall, and an especially warm November. But December arrived, avenging all that comfort.
|Bring it, Momma N! You don't scare me!
So, here's the latest from this past week.
First off, my streak is going well. Did you know I'm doing the Runner's World Winter Streak? This is my fourth time doing the winter streak (more details HERE and HERE). When Tuesday arrives, I'll already be past the half way mark! So far, I've done every run outside.
I'm very fortunate for my situation. I live in a neighborhood that allows me to run very early in the morning or after work (both of which are in the dark) and there's never a safety concern. Also, sometimes I'm given an extended lunch "hour" (depending on my work load), and that allows me to do some of my runs during the daylight hours.
One morning, as I was finishing my run, I met up with the husband and Max. I grabbed the leash and Max ran the final stretch with me (about the length of a city block). He was so excited!

|Can you see them? The tiny streaks are snow flakes...
|I should have worn the red hat instead...
This pretty little shirt (by 73 Threads) was featured on the Route 66 expo's Facebook event page. Unfortunately, it sold out during the first day. When I found their booth (on day two), it was gone...but they let me place a special order and it arrived this past week. It's the perfect keepsake from my weekend of running in Tulsa.
