Yikes, it's nasty out. I'm headed to Chicago for the Hot Chocolate 15K tomorrow and if that side of the lake is like this side of the lake, I'm in for a bitter cold race. Needless to say, I packed my running coat, hat and gloves for extra warmth.
You'd think I would have chosen the warm Snickerdoodle latte from Dunkin, but you might recall that I'm addicted to iced coffee. So, cold it was. With a side of pumpkin donut:
We stopped to get the oil changed, too. This is a task I hate, and it usually shows:
"Mommy, who's that guy?"
"Can we go now?"
"What's he doing, mommy?"
"Does green mean go?"
"Is he fixing our car?"
"Where are we going next?"
"Mommy, look! A dolphin..."
I don't know why, but they have a fake (and huge) dolphin hanging on the wall. #random
Anyway, we're home now.
And here's my list of November goals:
2) Perfect the art of pour-over iced coffee.
3) Find a new Winter coat. (And some warm clothes, too.)
4) Contemplate some Spring races.
I only came up with a few goals this month because we're entering Holiday season. Which is never a busy season, right? #sarcasm So we'll keep it easy and manageable. And you should, too.
More tips on staying healthy throughout the Holidays will be forthcoming. Stay tuned?
Have a weekend.
