Another Thinking Out Loud Thursday – linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons.
#1 I’m done with Winter
Another 2 hour + commute yesterday. Ottawa had a band of heavy snow hit right during rush hour. My normal 40-60 minute commute was doubled. Even people from close by were late to work as Ottawa traffic basically stopped. Although I am appreciative of the wilder winter, I’m tired of the snowy conditions. Apparently 12 of the 14 first days in February has snow. The other day I was arriving home and it was sunny – that confused me a bit! I’m also done with my dirty car, boots and dragging indoor shoes everywhere I go. I’m also done with snowsuits.
#2 Swiss Muesli Bowls/Overnight oats
Seriously – where have you been all my life? I made the Swiss Muesli bowl recipe in Run Fast, Eat Slow. Absolutely delicious! I also like the fact that I can make a bowl the night before and quickly grab it in the morning to place in my lunch bag.
#3 Possible Race Schedule?
I’m planning on racing a 10K in Grimsby this weekend for fun. The weather is looking excellent, so why not? The other races I’m considering this year are:
St Patricks 5K in Ottawa
Mississauga Half Marathon
Ottawa Race Weekend (already signed up for the Half)
Emilie’s Run 5K
Canada Day 5K
Army Run (already registered for Commander’s Challenge)
9 Run Run in Stittsville – 10K?
The Fall is pretty open. I’m running Army Run for sure, but the rest of the fall is completely open. I’ve applied to NYC and I know I am not running STWM this year.
Anyone else running any of the above races?
