Full of Joy and happiness

Yes I'm mentioning the weather again, 16F and it felt like 10F. But I got through it I had to take my glasses off this morning, they kept fogging up. Then my eyes was watering thru my whole run!!! from the cold.

I haven't been posting my time or mileage much lately because this is my month to relax but still put in the miles. I will start again in January.

I almost made it back to track tonight. I was really ready to make a comeback, and see some old friends again, my running cloths was in the car so I could change from work. But it just didn't happen. And I did not put in any extra time tonight at the Gym. On my way home I visited Mom and had some home made soup. Just what I needed to warm up.

My joy and happiness picture is dedicated to my son Elliott whom I'm very proud of he received two offers today from two of his back-up colleges (colleges he was sure to get into) Southern and Western Connecticut state colleges. We are just waiting for two major ones one our list. Then we will make a decision.

It's nice to forget about the miles and the speed every once in awhile. For me, when the watch comes out it means I am serious. I normally do not wear a watch.

Congratulations to Elliott. I know this is a tough time for seniors.

Keep warm and have a relaxing month. You'll be busy come January.

Wow - go Elliott! It seems he has a new offer every time I read your blog - that is so awesome!! This really puts him in the driver's seat to choose what he wants. Keep us posted on him - this is great!

Burrrrr - how do you do it?! We had a cold front come through today - will get down to 19 today and I'm kind of glad I can't run tomorrow so I don't have to even think about it. 19... man, you'd probably be sweating!

Good job on your runs. Home made soup - yum!

More good news for your boy!

Run some junk miles this month -- you certainly deserve it.
