I woke up around 4:20 this morning and could feel immediately that there was no falling back asleep. So I got up, took my time and drank coffee. I got dressed and did some PT and strength training in our basement gym. I could have ran on the treadmill in our basement but I really wanted to run outside. It’s been SO dark in the morning and I just don’t feel as safe as I used to running in the dark alone. So I waited for the sun to just start peaking out. It also gave me a chance to kiss the kids good morning.
It was still pretty dark and the path I was taking doesn’t have many street lights so I still needed my headlamp for the first half of the run.
It was pretty cold, in the mid 20s definitely time to get used to the cold!
I love running outside in the morning, especially in the fall!
Headlamp off for the second half of the run!
Just a quick three miles but it makes such a difference in how I feel all day.
The mountains got a fresh coat of snow yesterday and were glowing pink so the kids joined me to appreciate them when I got home.
Then it was time for school and all the normal weekday morning things.
Even after a warm shower I was so cold that I needed hot coffee, a blanket and fuzzy crocks. Should have switched out for my slippers but these were in the school room.
Later we went bike riding and Cannon banged his knee pretty bad. He came in for ice cuddles. He was enjoying his blanket, heating pad and tablet so much that when I asked for a sad face to show he was hurt this was the best he could do.
For dinner we had Costa Vida salads and the kids had quesadillas. I love these salads so much, we always get the steak ones. When we were done we drove around the neighborhood to see Halloween decorations. It’s not all out like Christmas decorations but many homes had fun displays and two houses even had a really cool light show set to music.
Does your neighborhood decorate for halloween?
What part of the day is your favorite to run?
