Random Thoughts Thursday.

Happy chilly Thursday!! I got out for a run in the city lights last night with plummeting Texas temperatures. That’s right you guys…from temps in the 70s all the way down to the 20s!! I kid you not. Welcome to bipolar weather in the lone star state. We are used to it here.

I actually do LOVE cold weather running, provided that my extremities are covered. For real…I do not know how in the world people run outside with temps less than 45 degrees without some gloves on. I could literally wear a tank and shorts in the cold! As long as my hands are covered. Maybe that makes me a weirdo. I fully own that.

I hope you all are staying healthy. This dang new variant is so contagious and EVERYONE seems to be getting it, vaxxed or not. It sounds like we are at the peak of it though, so things are going to die down soon. Let’s hope and pray.

I am excited to get back to my RUN CLUB this weekend!! I have been doing a lot of solo miles lately so I really am ready to get back to being in a group setting doing some (socially distanced) miles. What I love about my run club is that no matter how long you stay away or just ‘need a break’ from the hustle and bustle of running with groups they always welcome you back with open arms.

-My next race will be the Cowtown 50k (those of you who have followed me for a while know I pace this race quite often) and it will without a doubt be a RUN for FUN good time. I’m actually running this race FOR ME and not someone else, this time.

Not doing a lot of training this go round but I am okay with that. I just want my legs to get back in the groove of running lots of miles and time on my feet.

I’m just now catching up with this Britney Spears vs. Jamie Lynn fiasco. YouTube has been keeping me up to date. I really am not sure who’s side I am on. I just know that I am watching the trainwreck. What can I say it is a bit of a guilty pleasure.

Share some randomness with me from your week! Are you team Britney or team Jamie Lynn?!

  1. I am also extremely excited to get back to my run group! I miss them all dearly. I as well, am trying to digest the Spears news this past little while! Enjoy your social runs!

  2. How have you found the vaccinations? I had my third about a fortnight ago and since then I’m finding my endurance when running is really RS. I’m not antivax but one has to wonder if the cure isn’t as bad as the disease!

    1. I think the vaccine affects everyone differently. Personally it hasn’t affected my running. I have taken a step back from high mileage because it was wearing my body down but ramping back up along with teaching a ton of classes at the gym. Hope you are able to get your mojo back soon friend!!
