Signing off.....

We had a great time last night. I stayed out of the booze, but left with a fancy food processor, mall gift card and hefty bonus. Definitely a positive way to end the 2009 work year!





I also chopped off my hair!

The Run

I have just one word for this morning's 30K/18-miler: cold. It was -16C/3F from start to finish and I didn't warm up at all. I was underdressed and suffered for it for three hours. And my water froze! So much for "thermal", Nathan! The water was slushy and the nozzle was completely frozen closed after an hour and a half. Not cool. Fortunately I had plenty of good company to keep me distracted - and warm thoughts of daiquiris on the beach...

It's taper time! 3 weeks til Goofy and less than 24 hours until we are on our way to Cuba!
