My friend Julie convinced me to run a 10 K this morning. That’s no sweat for her since she’s totally into running these days, but 10K is a little further than I’m used to – specifically, the 50 foot journeys I usually make between the couch and the refrigerator during commercial breaks. But the good news is that I didn’t vomit the entire time!
But it was like 8 degrees outside! The race route was 2x around Lake Harriet, and it was a completely iced over. Every step I could feel myself slipping around a little bit. But it still felt great to be outside breathing the cold air this morning.
Here’s the best part: I bet I burned at least 600 calories, which is approaching one quarter of the calories I intend to eat for Thanksgiving dinner this afternoon. That means I get to eat 25% more stuffing! Forget turkey, by the way. I’m totally into stuffing.
Race: 2010 Drumstick Dash 10K
Distance: 10K (6.21 miles)
OK, well let’s just skip to the photos of my mug that I know y’all are craving right now.
This is how I roll:
