Cold Walk + Christmas 5K

Wrote my post too early.  Husband got home and was game for our 2 mile walk.  Man was the wind cold!  It is only in the 30's (so not crazy cold), but I needed the running tights that Santa is bringing me on Sunday to wear underneath the track pants I still had on from my trip to the Y this morning.  Brr!!!  Got home and headed out to dinner.  The mexican joint was long on cheese and steak, but not so much on veggies.  Oops.  I'll probably regret that tomorrow.

But in the next two days I have to knock out 3.1 miles whenever I can get it in.  Because Daily Vitamin F is hosting another holiday 5K and I need all the good excuses that I can get to keep moving past the food coma of the holidays. 

I have some last minute shopping to do plus a haircut at noon tomorrow.  Then I have plans with my kids to go driving around looking at lights tomorrow evening.  Sunday morning we have to usher at 8:30 mass plus of course the gift opening, family dinner (at our house), more gift opening, etc.  But the weather is supposed to be relatively agreeable - 40s tomorrow and maybe even low 50's on Sunday.  Heck, I'm tempted to try to do the 3.1 miles twice with those temps!  At least I don't have to do the "hellish" course from last weekend.  I've printed out my "bib" and will have to con my daughter into being my photographer again, but I should be able to get this done.  I'll shoot to do the NY's race too!
