Fractional Friday



It's Friday again and you know what that means...Yep, random thoughts from the unknown...hehe

1. Holy Crap it's COLD! - Seriously now, this below freezing temperature stuff is for the birds (or should I say penguins?) I get that I don't have any control over the weather, but seriously, come on now...if I have to suffer thru this crazy weather, can I at least have some snow flurries to brighten my mood?

2. Food - food and MORE food. The only bad thing about the holidays is that there is so much food it's not even funny. (We could totally feed a small starving country with how much food there has been this week.) Had a luncheon yesterday at work for Thanksgiving, am having another luncheon at work next week for Thanksgiving AND we are having THANKSGIVING next week too. Oh.My.Gosh - I'm going to have to run 5 marathons to burn all these calories.

3. Thanksgiving - yep, it's next week. I am excited - not about the super duper long drive we are going to make with the girls to get there but about getting to see my family (and no, I don't have to go ALL THE WAY to hell, just close enough that the temperatures will warm up...and by warm up, I mean they are talking about going swimming?!)

4. Marathon - I am now down to the wire - in 2 weeks I will be putting my money where my mouth is and braving my very first Marathon. That right people...I'm either gonna sink or swim - but either way I'm sure it will be an experience of a lifetime. St. Jude Marathon is on December 6 and I along with many thousands more will brave the cold in support of a cause worth it's weight in gold.

5. Have I mentioned it's COLD! Unseasonably cold for this time of year and I chose this year to run a marathon...um, can you say CRAZY! Well, that is what I'm thinking each time I think I have to go out this weekend for one last fairly long run before the big day - it's been like -0 (ok, not really, but it feels like it) in the morning...I am not going to like being outside before the sun comes up...wish me lots and lots of 'hot' thoughts! :)

Hope you all have a great weekend - oh and check back on Monday, I have a little something for ya!

I always hear people talk about how dangerous the holidays are in terms of food, because there's always so much more of it than usual...maybe I'm just not social enough in that way, because I don't find a lot of holiday temptations outside of just eating on actual Thanksgiving and Christmas day (except maybe some leftovers).

Everyone here is griping about it being cold... it's like 30... and all the while, I am still wearing shorts... of course I have polartek pullovers, but it really ain't that cold yet here...

It has been beautiful this fall, though, so I posted a bunch of pics...

It is freezing here too....the only place I seem to be able to totally get warm is in my car. Have a great trip and don't eat too much, you have a marathon to run....I'll be thinking of you as I stuff my face while sitting on my couch under the covers. :)

Oh man... I don't envy you running a marathon in this weather. I still remember how my lungs would burn during track practice when the weather was still cold and you could see your breath. NOT fun. But you go girl! I'm sure you'll do great! (Is your hubby gonna be there to catch a 'crossing the finish line' photo?)

I agree about the cold! It seemed like one day it was nice and warm, and the next day it's crazy cold.

Best of luck with the marathon!! I'm going to be living vicariously through you since I couldn't do mine. You will do great!
