About Me

My Photo
My real life is a lot like THS (True Hollywood Story) except there's no fame, fortune, or drug addiction. Instead, I'm happily married, have two children, and a dog who's prone to barfing at 3 am. I love them all, but I also have to run away from them every day. I always run back, though.

Brrrr...By the Numbers

Temperature this morning in South Florida: 37 degrees

"Feels Like" Temp: 30 degrees

Number of miles Jess ran: 12

Time: 2:01:13

Average Pace: 10:06/mile

Number of apparently frozen lizards spotted on the way: 11 (it was really inexplicable -- they looked as though they had frozen and died mid-scamper across the sidewalk; 6 of them were iguanas that were about a foot in length)

General thoughts: While 30 degrees is a shock to my system, I'd rather run 12 miles in 30 degree temps than in 80 degree temps. Despite the initial cold I felt in the first few miles, I settled into a comfortable pace pretty quickly, and on the whole, the run felt really good!

In non-running numbers, Jerry wanted me to take a poll today about Norah's pants:
He says they are, and I quote, "The most uggo pants" he has ever seen and he claims that Norah will look back on pictures of herself in them and feel ashamed that I dressed her in this outfit.

I counter that they are cute, not to mention that the shirt and pants are a combo outfit and so they match each other; thus, they MUST be coordinated together.

Either way, we agree that she is cute no matter what, so don't judge her general cuteness, just the pants; so whatcha think? Are they "uggo"? Or, are they cute and stylish?

Did Norah get a free bowl of soup with those pants?

marathonsnmartinis said...

I think the pants are cute!

TNTcoach Ken said...

Another vote for 'uggo'! Frozen lizards, that's so cool, plus it kept your mind off the miles. Anytime I see roadkill I just say they didn't train enough!

Stephanie said...

As a well renowned baby fashion expert, it is my finding that while Norah is most certainly a 10 - those pants are only about 4.

Lisa said...

Great job on your long run. 30 Deg may be a shock to you, but it is actually not that bad for running...

No way I'm getting in the middle of this pants argument. LOL

RunningLaur said...

You're getting back into distance running so well, and I'm with you with the 30F over 90F for running.

I thought the point of having kids was to put them in situations/pictures which will embarrass them in the future. The pants are fine though as part of an overall outfit, mainly because the shirt is a solid and more fabric than the pants. Creates a nice balance.

gene said...

yep, sorry. uggo.
in other news, my parents found a dead lizard on their kitchen table in Stuart last week. Mid stride....
nice 12 miler! congrats....

Erin said...

Uggo coming from the man of style himself, Jerry? Come on, if she were 12 years old, yes, but since she's a baby and they match the shirt, she's cute and adorable. Men.

ajh said...

Love the pants and the whole outfit although it could be the cute baby in the outfit is so cute it doesn't matter! I would not be thrilled to keep seeing frozen lizards on my run though. A great summer for me is one where I don't come upon ANY live snakes and very few dead. Even the dead ones make me leap much higher than I would think I am capable of!
I am with you that I would much rather run when it is cool than hot!

teacherwoman said...

First of all, nice job on the run!

Secondly, I LOVE Norah's pants. Kids can only get away with cute printed pants for so long. Now, if you were to dress her in that sort of outfit when she is in 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade, it might stir up some converstation among teachers... totally not acceptable.

sideofsneakers said...

I think they're cute. But that's cuz she's cute. If she were 15, not so cute though.

moni said...

I love the whole ensemble!! Norah is a certain "fashionista". She's a baby...she looks great in everything.

Good job on the run. You impress me everyday!

MCM Mama said...

Nice job on the 12 miles! Great pace!

I think the outfit is adorable, but the pants definitely should only be worn with the coordinating top. ;o)

N.D. said...

great job - holy crap cold for you guys!

JojaJogger said...

Norah is cute no matter what she wears, but I think the cutest outfit she's worn online was the black godzilla shirt with jeans. Oops, Jerry picked that one out. Great job on the 12 miles.

Xenia said...

Sadly, yes, the pants are uggo, but Norah is so cute it doesn't matter.

Great pace on the run, btw! I aspire to those numbers myself. Have yet to reach it though...

Lily on the Road said...

Oh I love the matchy matchy outfit...not Uggo at.all!!!

Poor lizards....that is just awful.

oh and good job on your run!

Alice said...

I don't think I've ever commented on your blog but I feel my need to put my 2 cents in on the pants. I think they are awesome. They remind me of outfits I give my niece which my brother in law likes to refer to as her hippy clothes. We all agree she'll only look cute in the hippy clothes for so many years..but for now they are cut and she is cute in them. If you made Nora wear that outfit as a 10 yr old? Pretty sure I'd say they are uggo..but for a baby? awesome.

Also great job on the cold run!

Mel said...

I agree with it being a cute baby outfit. By themselves without the top maybe not. On an older child probably not again but it is a baby outfit meant to be fun and cute. Like the others said though she is a cutie and would look good in just about anything.
Good job on the run in the cold.

D10 said...

I don't think Norah could wear anything uggo! And if she did, you wouldn't notice because she is so very cute.

Nice job on the 12 Jess!

shellyrm said...

They are super cute! Totally stylist! What is he thinking?

Great job on the 12 miles! Ugh on the frozen lizards. I did 6.5 in 10 degrees (with sun). After the first mile I totaly felt fine. It was refeshing!

ESH said...

Totally cute and stylish. And foot long iguanas? Really? Do you run and scream away from them? I would! Even if they were frozen to death...

inmytummy said...

Definitely agree that running in 30 degree weather beats running in 80 degree weather. Although I'd probably complain about both.

I like her pants. Babies can get away with big flowery leggings. Now, if she were an adult..

Agate Lake Girl said...

The pants are fab! No offense to Jerry, but Mr. tee and jeans wouldn't be my "go to" guy on fashion issues. :)

Hollie said...

I vote too cute to Norah and the outfit!

itsmejane said...

oh my God I'm freezing my butt off over here!!

And I love her pant outfit. Come on...from Jerry? I've some pics with him wearing uggo pants! now THOSE would be illegal!! ;)

Rio said...

I think the pants look cute with that top- they match! Besides, this is the time for kids to wear prints and wild colors and not dress as mini-adults all the time. I wouldn't recommend Jerry wear the pants, but Norah looks terrific in them.

Amanda said...

I'm with you, cute pants! That is crazy about the lizards..and sad if they are dead. It just looks so wrong seeing you in long sleeved running gear. Great job on your 12 miler!

RunnerGirl said...

I like the pants with the shirt. Maybe not so much on their own, but with the shirt they work for me :)

Java Joggers said...

Most definitely stylish!

d.a.r. said...

Super cute!! You and Norah :) And for the record, baby outfits like that are just precious!!

And wow, awesome run!

sara said...

those pants are super cute! and definitely work perfectly with the shirt.

nice run in the cold weather--i would have probably laid in bed for hours hoping the temperature would creep up. brrr.

Rachel said...

Those pants are absolutely adorable. And I would love to see a frozen lizard. That is awesome!

Laurel said...

I say she makes those pants look good :)

Actually, the pants alone probably would not be cute, but with the whole outfit, they are adorable.

How do you not sit there and just pinch her cheeks ALL DAY LONG?!?!?

Laurel said...

Oh yeah, nice job on the long run!

Marci said...

Pants, uggo (Norah =super cute)
Good job on your 12 miles! I think you will PR your half, when is it?

from5ktomarathon said...

I'm not a big commenter on your blog but I just had to say that your husband truly cracks me up!

I do think the pants are cute, especially since they go with the shirt. Wear 'em proudly, little Norah!

Heather Forcey said...

I love the pants! She is such a cutie pie!

Aka Alice said...

Pants by themselves? Not. So. Much... With the top? fabulous outfit!

So...where exactly are all those frozen lizards hanging out when they're not frozen and falling out of trees? (I saw that on the news) Are they in the trees just watching?

Not to freak you out or anything, but...

((shudder))

Sarah said...

She is seriously adorable so it doesn't even matter what she wears! :) That said, I'm not a fan of the flower pants but I'm sure I was guilty of dressing my daughter in them at that age too. Thank goodness her style has improved!

The Running Knitter said...

30 degrees is freezing in my book. You are hardcore.

I think the pants are cute!

michelle said...

Definately cute and adorable! Men know nothing, Dan thinks most of Kate's printed clothes are ugly, too. If it were up to him she'd wear nothing but a diaper, or a plain white onesie if it's a little chilly!

Jamoosh said...

Trailer park pants. That's all I'm sayin'

Stacey said...

Jerry needs to get with it. Doesn't he know leggings are all the rage for the "kids" these days?! Very cute outfit for anyone under the age of five!

Krissy said...

I think that picture of Norah is adorable and the outfit is so cute!

Viper said...

Frozen lizards? Now that is an interesting running obstacle. Congrats on getting out there! Cheers!

Betsy said...

Jerry is mistaken. Those are adorable.

Runner Leana said...

Before I saw the poll I saw the picture of you two and I thought she looked super cute in that adorable outfit. My vote is for cute pants. Now if we tried to wear those at our age that might be a different story, but I love the outfit on Norah!

Marlene said...

I was thinking of you while I was in FL during the cold snap. I seriously couldn't believe the cold!

Great job on the run and not letting the temp stop you. I definitely agree that 30F is better thsan 80-F for a 12-miler.

sRod said...

I think Jerry missed the fundamental rule of children's clothing: it all looks cute because it's all so small. You could dress her in a garbage bag and as long as it's shorter than two feet, it will be the most adorable thing ever created.
