Escape From Winter

What a crazy week. One minute it was Monday and then suddenly it was today and I was on my way to California for a long, sun-filled weekend. I'll be north of Los Angeles where I'm expecting the daily temps to exceed 70 degrees. I may have only packed two things suitable for that warm but I don't care. I'm so tired of being cold! This is a much-needed break that will include some beautiful outdoor running. And hopefully a lot of wine drinking.

Be jealous my friends. Very, very jealous.

I've taken the liberty of rest days on my optional bike/swim days due to a busy week. When given the choice between an extra 1.5 hours of sleep or a spin on the trainer, I'd rather sleep. Unfortunately I had my first missed run this week, a missed a run this week, a progressive 5-miler slated for Tuesday. I was exhausted in the morning and getting home at 9pm made it very unappealing.

I'll be in California for the next 4 days and then I'm off to Cincinnati for business. It will be 40 degrees cooler and I'll be back on the treadmill so I plan to make the most of this weekend!


  1. YOU ARE A BUSY WOMAN!!! I would have chosen sleep too:) Enjoy the warm temps!!! I am going to send you some Clementines!

  2. Great call getting out there
    Save the sanity!

  3. Have fun!!

    ...and not complaining about the cold when you get back!!! :)

  4. Bring that CA weather back to NY!!!

  5. Oh I'm so jealous of the CA trip! Ohio could use some of that warmth... bring it with you! :)
