Apples & Colds

Between weddings and Toonfest and back-to-school and that awful cold virus that's going around, we only had a few hardy souls who managed to complete the Michigan Apple Fun Run! Congrats to Jeff W (9.37 miles), Craig (9.32), Kristin (7.44) and Chris (6.21) for making it to the finish!

After two weeks of coughing and being sickly, I did go out for the first time on Sunday and managed to run 2.2 miles. It actually sounds pretty bad, but I had an easier time than I thought I would after not training for so long.

So this week it's back to the gym, and hopefully back up in the double-digit miles by the weekend.

I'm going to try my Michigan Apple Fun Run this coming weekend, Sept 27, so if anyone else is free and feeling better, join me!

We are having great weather here in Michigan, but winter could set it in any time now. We usually get about a week and a half of fall, and then bam, the cold winter winds blow through.

I'm trying to enjoy what little outdoor running time I have left, before I have to head back indoors to the dreadmill. Unlike Jeff W, you will not see pics of me running with icicles dripping from my face. I'm not Tundra-tough!!

Cold season here in CT as well...started with my daughter last night, so I'm just waiting for my turn.

Weather doesn't change here as fast as out there (Gulf stream I thinks...), but it's way colder this time of year in 2008 versus 2007....what can ya do.

I'm hoping that I can tough the cold weather when it comes, but we'll see. :-)

I am trying so hard to get over this. I am glad you are feeling better too.
