Today's accomplishment was a cold, slippery, snowy and slushy 15-mile run. It was the longest run I've done since the 2007 Marine Corps Marathon. Puppy entertained me during the first loop of 10 miles before being deposited back in the warm and cozy house, where he almost immediately began what would become a marathon napping session for him! I ran back in the house for a quick bathroom break, using the kitchen to refill my water bottles and refuel with two Einstein bagel bites. Then out the door in the cold wind to knock out the last 5 miles. I kind of like the loop concept because it breaks a mundane task into doable parts. So just when I thought I had accomplished something big, I was topped by Greg who had spent the afternoon with a 2 1/2 year old with two successful potty trips! I love when life puts everything into the right perspective.
Bring on Santa because this house is ready and excited!
