I have issues
I know most of you guys really know what cold is, but dang it’s been cold for this Cali girl lately. Our overnight low last night was 28. Twenty eight! At the beach. No wonder I feel like snuggling on the couch with Bam & our favorite blanket all day.
But after seeing your pictures of running in the snow – hello rock.stars, I peeled myself off the couch and went for a run.
New running threads from the uber cool folks at Mizuno totally helped. I was nerdy excited to take the new Wave Rider 17’s for their first spin. I’ll be sure to do a full review after I put them through the SCB test. Whatever that is.
Ford Models, I’m still available.
My biggest challenge was choosing between the gray & white Wave Riders. I went with the darker ones since it just rained. #firstworldproblems
I had a great time jumping over puddles, getting accosted by a bum who was threatening to stab me with an umbrella and running through sand slides. Did I just make up a new word?
Even made time to stop & smell the freshly cut Christmas trees locked up in tree jail.
Apparently Mike thinks I have issues. You see, when I come home all hopped up on endorphins I tell him every single thought that popped into my head while running. And noooo I don’t sensor or prioritize or stay on the same topic very long. He calls it “speaking Jacqueline.”
After a long, hot shower we went to lunch and out for a hot cup of coffee. All I heard when I walked into Starbucks is blah blah blah Christmas Blend is 30% off.
We played the what do you want to do, I don’t know what do you want to do game until I came up with doing a little Christmas shopping on Cannery Row. I mean, it’s the non-touristy season and I figured Christmas shoppers would be at the mall or Target.
Turns out it was a pretty good idea.
Do you talk a lot when hopped up on endorphins?
What do you usually think about while running? Or do you tend to zone out?
Since I’m a nerd, what’s todays high where you are? Any brave friends who run in the snow?
