This was my mother's backyard today in Portland. We don't leave until a week from tomorrow, but I need to mentally prepare. Brrrrrr.... that'll make today's 50 degree run seem balmy. Too bad running tights are on my Christmas list, but I will need to run at least one day there before then. I will be running in sweat pants. Maybe I should bring my trail shoes for better traction.
Today's run was nice. Laura and I ran downtown along the bay for a change of scenery. It was cold (cold for San Diego) and blustery, but luckily the rain isn't here today (yesterday and tomorrow). We chatted about doing the Rock-n-Roll Marathon again in June. I think 3 out of 4 of our little "rockin' mama" running group are going to do it again. I am actually excited. We learned a lot last year. We are going to train so much smarter this time. The first time is all about building up endurance and confidence. This time we are going to focus on skill and strength as well.
I hope you are all staying warm and enjoying the holiday season.
