Checking In: Part Deux

The bachelorette party was loads of fun -- but I'll wait to fill you in on details and post pictures tomorrow when I'm at home. But, we didn't get to bed until about 3 am, and I was awake at 8:30, so I haven't really been well-rested. However, that didn't stop me from once again bundling up and braving the elements for a quick run.

Today was a little chillier than yesterday, but it was so pretty out: foggy with frosted trees -- it looked like a winter postcard. So while it was cold, I enjoyed a quick 3 miler. The air here at his time of year feels strangely good to breathe while running. Granted, it's sharp and almost harsh on the lungs, but at the same time, it's so crisp and dry that it feels good to breathe it. In Florida, the air always feels thick and moist; and it never has that sharp, clean feeling.

Yet, that crisp air comes at a price: my skin is dry, everything is staticky, and I've been parched since I got here. Still, it was a beautiful run, and it's so nice to be able to run at 11 am and not sweat to death.

But...I fly out this evening, and arrive home late tonight, so I'll fill you in the fun details of the trip tomorrow evening after work.

Holy snap. That is true dedication woman! Running after a bachlorette party and after a couple hours of sleep. Ok, now I feel like a total slug.

hope you had a good trip home last night. I heard some nonsense on the weather this AM that it might hit 90 tomorrow, obviously you didn't bring back the MN weather.
