Running in FL

I’m not one to pass up a cupcake.

Or apple pie…

Or a cake pop…

Or biscoff cookies, animal crackers, or goldfish…

I did pass on the pacifier…

Although Miss Rae capitalized on this rare opportunity…

And because of my willingness to embrace every delightful taste of Christmas, I also embrace most opportunities for a good run.

Running in Florida is another story. I got up early to avoid the heat. It was still 66 degrees.

This is how I dress for a winter run in Washington:

I’m not sure what’s wrong with my lips. Maybe it was the fact that I had just finished running in a sauna. Typically, it’s hard for me to breathe because my lungs are frozen. Today’s run felt like I was breathing in giant mouthfuls of steam. I choked through 2.8 miles. That was enough.

In general, it’s impossible to please me.

I take that back.

Running past rows of palm trees was pretty fabulous. And then I went inside and ate a giant Einstein bagel.

I never pass up a bagel.

P.S. I’m 29 miles into my Holiday Running Streak! Only 6 miles to go before January 1st!
