T-G-I- Snowy Photo Friday

The Greater Toronto Area is being pounded by a winter storm today – it’s freezing cold, windy and the snow has been falling non-stop since this morning.

From these pictures, it doesn’t look like much snow has settled, but that’s because it’s blowing all over the place. If I was brave enough to venture more than a foot outside the house, I’d show you some ginormous snow drifts.

I was able to leave work super early, got my hair done and made it home safe and sound (yay snow tires!). Why is there always a snow storm on the day of my company Christmas party? Thankfully, the bosses are paying for a taxi to chauffeur us to and from the event, so we don’t have to worry about driving.

Went for a quick 7K last night which turned into 8.7 due to a wrong turn. I was able to incorporate 25 minutes of steady state that I had missed on Tuesday and actually ran the entire route at steady state pace. I’m happy to report that my mojo stuck around. I skipped Spin for the first time since I started 5 or 6 weeks ago (oh, the guilt!) to get some housework and last minute Christmas shopping done. I’ll make up for it next week… on a week day… when I’m at home… during the day!

Regardless of the festivities tonight, I’ll be up early tomorrow for a run and Boot Camp. I’ve recruited some company for 24K on Sunday – the forecast is calling for another snow storm, but hopefully it’ll hold off til we finish the run.

Time to start getting ready and incase I haven’t mentioned it, today was my last day of work until January 5th!

Have a great weekend!

ETA: Quick bathroom self-portrait before we go. Hopefully the blizzard won’t ruin my hair! :S
