Thoughts on Winter
Well, it snowed in Alabama! This weekend I went to B'ham for Jenn's mom's wedding. They were forecasting snow, but in AL, I don't believe it until I see it. Much to my surprise, Saturday morning there it was- a light dusting of beautifulness on the ground. The good thing was that I was able to appreciate this beauty b/c it wasn't on the road, only the trees and people's yards. I had two great runs while I was there, too. My hands did get cold and afterwards I was SUPER cold, but other than that, I fared well.
Has anyone heard of Seasonal Affective Disorder? I know I am not clinically depressed, but I do have some of these symptoms. It's kind of a major downer when you get to work at daylight and don't leave until it's dark. I have found myself feeling rather "blah" lately, without any new reason.
On running matters, I have signed up for the Holiday Half this weekend. I am not really expecting to PR or anything, more like a nice, hard workout. I registered for total social reasons- to see Anna, Katie, and Michelle. Is that lame? I'm doing a race b/c my friends are doing it? Oh well, it wasn't too expensive.
I'm also very pleased to report that 87 (!!!!) middle schoolers signed up for track try-outs. This is very encouraging and just makes me even MORE excited!
