Blinded by the light

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend! Brent and I are doing the Rudolph 5K downtown preceding the annual Nashville Christmas parade. It should be chilly, but fun. Our temps have been 75 degrees + all week (which is honestly just too hot this time of year, I refuse to wear short sleeves) and they've been preaching doom and gloom all week about the cold front coming through as I type. They predicted tornadoes, ice, freezing rain - absolute chaos. That never happens here, it snowed a grand total of once last year. So, of course all that's coming down is rain. We're way below the snow line for this front, as always. But, it is going to be much colder tomorrow, which it really should be for a holiday parade!

Michele is running the Memphis Marathon (as is one of my coworkers), Darrell is running a seriously tough trail marathon in Indiana on his quest for 50 states, and David is running a half marathon. No doubt I have left someone out.

Brent has a new toy. Brent's new toy may need to be hidden and hidden well. All he wanted for Christmas is a new flash for his camera. All I want is a gym quality treadmill so I had no problem with his request! It came today and I think Pippin and I may already have some vision loss. There's nothing quite like trying not to fall off your crappy treadmill while seeing all sorts of stars. Poor Pippin, he wasn't much of a hunting dog to begin with and now he'll never be able to chase the 'coons.

We also bought respirators and safety goggles today at Home Depot. Some seriously gross carpet is leaving this house this weekend! We've got visitors coming to clean up for, they can't see that mess!!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

5k? I think you should run it 8 and a half times. You haven't done enough marathons. Good luck with the carpet!

Have fun in the Rudolph Run!! :) And if you wanna steal some of the snow we've got headed toward us, feel free. Right now it's a nasty icy rain, but they're saying something like a foot (which really means 5-6 inches) over the next day and a half.

Hope you have a great 5k.

I could have used the warmer temps for one more day.

I love that your husband has to read your blog to know what is going on!

Um, you're hiding Brent's new toy but how are you gonna keep him away from this blog?!

 
At 9:08 PM, Blogger Just12Finish said...

Never mind, just saw that he's already been here! You both are just too funny!

I'm a little slow on the uptake here, but thanks for the shout out. It was challenging but incredibly fun, like being a kid again.
