Yesterday was one of my favorite nights of the year. . .Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! It’s a night to get together with friends, wine and food and watch models strut their stuff. To make room for the copious amounts of food and wine I was consuming later, I decided to do a quick run outside (umm yes, I said outside) before I headed out.
I piled on 3 pairs of running tights, 2 pairs of socks, 3 long sleeve shirts and a puffy vest and braved the 11 degree temperature (my fingers were too cold to take pictures!). Instead of doing an out and back route I stuck to looping around my apartment in mile intervals just in case the cold got too bad. I did my first mile and was warmed up (well. . warm enough) so decided to keep going for another. The second mile windy and a little colder since I started to sweat a little so I thought about stopping when I got back to the apartment but as I ran up to the front of the steps I decided I had one mile left in me and pushed through (my toes may not have felt the same way though). I finished 3 miles and headed in for a warm and well deserved shower! Then I headed over to Samantha’s with what else. . cookies and wine. . to watch the VS Fashion show, feeling good about finishing the run!
In case you are keeping up with the #runchi holiday hundred challenge, I have 3 weeks and about 60 miles to go!
