I have no excuse for not running. I have been busy, but the weather has been beautiful lately. Tuesday I was quite busy, and my dog got her teeth cleaned, which meant that she needed to have anesthesia. She survived the experience with flying colors, although she was very clingy for 24 hours afterwards (which is understandable!).

I went out around 1.20 p.m. It was sunny and 68°F, with a humidity of 49 percent, a dew point of 48°F, and winds S at 9 mph.

I walked for 2 minutes,
ran for 22 minutes,

Hello everyone!

I know I haven’t written about any gluten-free items in a while, but yesterday I picked up Schar’s baguettes (it comes 2 to a package) at the local grocer. I decided to try it last night – big mistake! It was so delicious I ended up eating one baguette – it was that good!

Today I went out around 3.10 p.m. It was sunny and 47°F, with a humidity of 26 percent, a dew point of 14°F, and winds NNE at 14 mph (wind chill of 41°F). I wore a short-sleeved t-shirt under my jacket, but I did take along my fingerless gloves because of the wind.

I walked for 2 minutes,
ran for 22 minutes,
then walked home for a total of 25 minutes.

Run time: 22 minutes

Walk time: 3 minutes

Hard to believe it’s February with weather like this! 🙂

Wednesday, February 8

So I didn’t go running yesterday, because I had gotten my hair done (read: colored) and didn’t feel like dealing with the rain. (For you guys, hair coloring runs sometimes.)

Today I went out around 3.15 p.m. It was mostly cloudy and 50°F, with a humidity of 55 percent, a dew point of 34°F, and winds NNW at 9 mph (wind chill of 47°F).

I walked for 2 minutes,
ran for 28 minutes,
then walked home for a total of 31 minutes.

Run time: 28 minutes

Walk time: 3 minutes

I almost didn’t go today, but tomorrow’s forecast is as follows:

forecast-2017-02-08

Or there’s this forecast.

alternate-2017-02-08

In my younger, wilder days, I would go out running in snowstorms. Maybe I’ll venture out if I’m not snow blowing too much!

Have fun watching the Super Bowl – if you’re inclined to do so! My team hasn’t been in the Super Bowl since the 1980s, unfortunately. I mostly watch it for the commercials!
