Ice Out

Sophie and I were planning on running a Turkey Trot 5K this morning, along with my running partner Jim, at Como Park. Unfortunately a little bit of an ice storm hit the twin cities and the roads were pretty slick. I didn't want to risk driving, especially with the kidlet, so we were a DNS for the race. First time I have missed this race in 6 years! I am hoping to run a 10K Thanksgiving morning, so I'll still get some race action this week.

In other news, it is t-minus 7 days until the opening of my new law firm! I did LOTS of furniture shopping this weekend, stocked up on office supplies, and got paint samples. Aside from finishing out my last few days at my current office, this week will be full of work on the new office. I am so excited. And poor.

Hope you all had great weekends . . . I'm off to catch up on your running adventures!

that was smart not to go! It was nasty and dangerous out there!

It was REALLY bad. I watched as my kids slipped and fell just stepping out the front door and I had to chip ice off the windshield. Not fun.

It was so slippery last night. Kay was over at her boyfriend's house and when I went to pick her up the fastest I drove was 20 miles an hour! It sucked and I was all over the road. Ick!!

It sounds like you are having fun getting ready for your new law firm opening. I am so excited for you Heather! Good luck and cheers to a smooth and successful grand opening:)

Ice storms already? Uck! I so do not like winter. We've only had a dusting of the white stuff and then back in the 50's but suppose to get very cold by Turkey Day. Very exciting about the new firm :).
