I put on capris, a long sleeve, and a jacket for the first time in a LONG time (thanks for being nice lately, SoDak weather). I love running running in the rain. It's actually my favorite weather to run in, however, I loathe running in the cold while it's raining and the wind is gusting. When I reached the 3 mile turn around spot the wind smacked me in the face. It was SO COLD. (Once I got home, I realized the wind chill was 33 degrees; that explains it.) I tried to fit my hands into my light jacket's sleeves, but they were beyond numb by the time I got home. Also my legs felt like they were at least 1200 lbs. a piece. Clearly the lactic acid was still a-chillin' post 20 miler. Holy cow. Oh well, heavy legs equate to the easy pace I *should be* running my easy runs at. :)
I did 6 miles in 58:50 for a pace of 9:49.
After rushing around to get ready and pack it was off to the airport. I arrived at the airport *as* my flight was boarding (oops!) was the 2nd to last one to board. Arrived for my connecting flight as my 2nd flight was boarding. Of course it was in Chi-town so I had to run all over the airport. Made it, had terrible turbulence and almost barfed on the plane, and finally arrived in Dallas. :)
My brother came and picked me up shortly after I checked into my hotel and brought me back to his place so I could see my little nephew. Being the adorable 3 year old that he is, he had to show me how he could do EVERYTHING. And I snapped a gazillion pics in the process. Enjoy.
We're #1 obvs.
My bro and Harrison. H is literally a mini-Keith.
We both smile showing *ALL* of our teeth. Love it.
Brings new meaning to cheese, huh?
Had to play w/the editing on this one. He's just so cute. :)
