1. Hubs and I joined the usual Wednesday Run Club last night. The group was running 10K but we wanted to add on a bit, so we ran there and back for an extra 5K. It helped immensely having the company for the majority of this MWML (mid-week medium-long) run on a frosty evening. This group is the only way I’ll survive winter!
Yes this is Canada and yes it’s December, but BABY IT’S COLD OUTSIDE! The actual temp right now is -16C; that’s 3 degrees F! I’m really hoping the sun warms things up a bit before my lunch run because otherwise, I don’t think I brought enough clothes! BRRRR!
2. There were a few follow-up questions to my Lunch Run in Pictures post yesterday…
Teamarcia asked: “Is that Ladies Room a busy one? What do others think of you prepping in there?”
I work for a pretty small company (only 20 or so people in the office) and everyone knows my little routine by now. It’s a private washroom anyway, so there’s no risk of someone coming in while I’m snapping self-portraits in the mirror or dumping soggy clothes all over the floor.
Jawsome asked: “So, do you wash your hair in the sink?”
I did that once after a 20K run to work, but for shorter lunch runs I just give it a good towel-dry and let the sweat evaporate once I go back to my desk. It’s really attractive.
Chelsea asked: “Do you find the Nathan wipes actually, you know, do something? I’ve been using baby wipes and I know they clean me up okay…but I’m a little ripe by the time I drive home.”
This was my first time using the Nathan Power Shower Body Wipes, but there is no comparison between regular baby wipes. This one worked up an actual lather and one wipe was good enough for a thorough wipe down.
Hubs and I are painting the entire main floor of our house this weekend! I can hardly believe it’s been three years since we moved into our very first house to call our very own.
It’s about time we slapped some colour on the walls, but choosing to tackle this task in the busiest month of the year – without help – was perhaps not the brightest idea we’ve ever had.
