I Actually Ran During the Holiday

I took my running clothes with me on my trip. The kids didn't believe that I would actually run at all while I was down there. Hah!! I showed them. I put in 3 miles at the hotel on the day we arrived and then put in another 6,000 miles walking in Disneyland. I'm glad I packed the running shoes because I wore those the whole time I was at the park vs my casual shoes that look nice but don't have a lot of cushioning.

Going from temperatures in the low 20s to the low 70s was a nice relief. Coming home to be greeted by 3 inches of snow on my driveway was not pleasant. I was in an even less grateful to be home mood when I was finished running the snowblower with just my jacket and no gloves. I don't think we were in California long enough.

I am back and planning my 2010 running schedule. The Salt Lake Marathon is in April and Ogden is in May. I'm thinking probably the 1/2 for SLC and the full for Ogden. Then there is St. George. Do I submit my name again this year or just stick with the Top of Utah? Decisions, decisions....
