Five Things Friday, 1.21

  1. I'm not going to the 15K I had planned on this weekend.  It is going to be cold outside.  I have nothing against running when it is cold.  I love winter and snow and running and the combination of all three.  My bottom limit is about 20F for the distance I'm running...and Sunday's race temp is supposed to be between 0 and 5F.
  2. I haven't run in 48+ hours and I'm going a little stir crazy.  I have a low grade fever and when I try to take a deep breath it feels like I'm going to hack up a lung.  So, running is sidelined until I can breath without fear of loosing a lung.
  3. I signed up for another 5K.  It is in June and with be an absolute blast!  A race named Mud Mania! has to be fun.  It looks like everyone ends up covered in mud by the end of the race.  My running buddy Amanda is doing it too...and I think we're in the same wave.
  4. I may not have been running, but we are having an actual winter here so I have been shoveling snow, scraping ice, and trying to keep the driveway somewhat clear for the last couple weeks.  I can feel it in my shoulders and arms because I'm not used to shoveling  (and snow blowing) so much snow.
  5. I think that one of the best parts about not feeling great is taking naps.  I love napping!
