It’s 3 degrees outside and that’s a huge warm up from yesterday’s -8 with -30 windchill. Needless to say, I’ve been doing all my running on a treadmill. I only have 8.4 miles to go to my 1000 mile goal! If the weather was decent, I’d knock it out in one run, but I’m not sure I can do that on the treadmill.
We had the extended family Christmas yesterday and I think I’ve convinced a few family members to run the “Run for the Apples” 5 miler in October when we go to Minnesota for my cousin’s wedding. It’ll be cool to get a state and to run with my family.
On the not so cool side, I think I gained three pounds yesterday alone. At our family get togethers, you eat snack foods and sweets until you are so full that you might pop and then dinner is served LOL. It’s a good thing everyone is so active or we’d all be huge.
Jones and Shoo had their first exposure to Wii last night (yes, we keep our children sequestered LOL) and I see one in our near future. Jones loved it and was actually quite good at it. Beer Geek (who is so not the video game type) actually had a good time playing with him.
Off to eat and drink more…

I love the Wii. Great family entertainment. 🙂
The Wii is definitely fun… we’ve had a lot of laughs. Even my dad laughed with my son playing it, and he rarely laughs! You’ll hit your goal no problem! YAY!!!
1000 is right around the bend! I'm like you – I don't think I can do more than 5 miles on a mill.Enjoy the Wii! My kids have been asking, & I keep telling them they're too young. So far they've bought that excuse.
Looks like you will have no problem making your goal, even if you have to do it on the treadmill. Of course, you could take advantage of that heat wave and get outside . . .
The Wii is like crack. Glorious wonderful crack, but crack none the less. :o)
Congrats on nearly making your 1000 miles! How are you going to celebrate when you get there? Any commorative jewelry in your future? 🙂 Hope you & the family enjoy your holiday!! xoxo
Good for you for staying on the treadmill. You will reach your goal!
