And just like that ...

I'm out of NaBloPoMo. I meant to post yesterday but didn't. I was smart and actually went for bed after Little Miss went to sleep last night so I actually got a full night's sleep last night. I'm usually pretty dumb on the weekend and dick around on the internet after she goes to bed; Little Miss wakes up about the same time on weekends as weekdays so if I stay up late I don't get as much sleep as I should.

Winter has arrived in Minnesota. We had enough snow to coat the grass yesterday morning, although it melted by yesterday afternoon. This morning, it was 30-something with a 20-something windchill and close to 30 MPH winds. I would have put off my longer run until tomorrow except that it's supposed to be at least 10 degrees colder. I got in 9 miles this morning. I would've liked to get in 10, but I was just so tired with that wind. I hit 8 miles and turned into the wind full-on and it sucked so I decided 9 would be good enough.

I got nothing

It's going to be a long 30 days if I don't come up with some topics to post about. I skipped running this morning again after I was up too late last night. Unrelated, but they are talking about possible snow this weekend. We had a couple of unseasonably warm days (70 degrees) but a cold front came through today and dropped it down into the 40s. I'm not looking forward to winter, especially the part where I'll have to get Little Miss in and out of the car when it's below zero and/or snowing. A very nice benefit of her being on the small side is that I'll still be able to use her infant car seat as a carrier so that I at least won't have to deal with buckling/unbuckling her in the cold. I got a cover (not a BundleMe, those are not approved by car seat techs) for her seat to help keep her warm. It's one of the funniest things, though, since only her head peeks out.

Streak broken!

My sleeping in and not running streak, that is. I was pretty tired this morning, having stayed up past my bedtime to watch the election results, but I still managed to treadmill 3 miles. The treadmill is so boring ...

I'm remembering why I didn't like doing NaBloPoMo last year .... I don't have much to say. I took Little Miss with me to vote this morning. We had to wait in line for maybe 20 minutes, but that wasn't too bad. I passed another polling place on the way, and the line was not only out the door but people were lined up just to park.

Another super boring post

Obligatory post for NaBloPoMo ... no run this morning. I'd planned on treadmilling this morning but was too tired. I hoped I might be able to pull off getting out to daycare/work early so I could leave work early and run before picking up Little Miss but that didn't happen. I'm going to end up with 4 days off in a row, because I won't have time to run tomorrow morning since I want to go vote before going into work. Getting to my polling place is going to be a big pain. My site used to be awesome - I basically had two turns and it took less than 5 minutes to get there. But this year, the road the site is on is under construction, and I'm going to have to go the long way to get there which will take maybe 10-15 minutes. Pain in the butt.

So much for that long run

I will not be going for a run today.

Wow, 2.5 months since my last post? I knew it had been awhile, but didn't realize it was that long! Obviously been a bit busy!
