The weekend included some festivities, running, relaxing AND baking. In fact, I baked twice in one day, which was a regular occurrence before I had kids.
Here’s some of the fun.
Saturday started with a baby shower for my sister-in-law! My mother-in-law baked the cutest cookies as usual.
Well, winter is here in Cleveland.
I guess technically it is still fall, but Mother Nature must have forgotten this week, because the weather felt much more like January. Cold, icy and snowy.
Yes, that was what we woke up to Tuesday. A layer of ice covered by 3ish inches of snow, and it was only 15ish degrees when I woke up. So, I decided to hit the treadmill.
The snow stuck around through the rest of the week (it finally warmed up somewhat Saturday), so I ended up running inside pretty much the whole week.
Here’s a look at my mileage:
Sunday before the snow hit it was in the 40s, so I got out for a stroller run with FW. We got in 5 miles, which is a longer stroller run for both of us — he doesn’t usually keep in the stroller that long and LM definitely doesn’t.
FW even took a picture of me during the run!
I hope it’s a little warmer and we’re done with the winter weather for a while so I can be back outside again this week.
Questions for you:
- How do you keep running outside when it gets snowy/icy?
- Do you like running on treadmills?

“What are you guys doing this weekend?” My mom asked me on one of our daily calls (yes, we talk pretty much daily) this week.
“I don’t think we have anything planned,” I replied. And then I checked our calendar. Sure enough, this is the last weekend before the holidays with absolutely nothing on our calendar! So, I was looking forward to having nothing planned and doing whatever we wanted. Which turned into a date night, several trips to the museum, a visit to the library, a playground stop and more.
Here’s what the weekend entailed:
I have a decent amount of vacation time left this year, so I decided to take a few hours off Friday and hang out with FW. This meant we had some fun one-on-one time, which included going to the “pancake store” for lemon ricotta pancakes.
My last running post may have been about how October was a great running month, how the weather was amazing and yatta yatta yatta. Well, the running gods heard me, because this week November came in with a BANG and it was cold. We even had our first few snow flurries!
Wow – can you believe it is already November? Here’s a look at what our weekend entailed:
Friday night sushi. Because I haven’t had some in a while and it hit the spot!
October may be my favorite running month. Especially this year. We had a pretty mild month with no early snowfall and not too much rain that it interfered with my runs. And despite only getting in one race, it seemed like near perfect racing conditions each weekend. That’s why I’m proud of my total mileage for the month! Continue reading
Whew! I am still recovering from this past weekend’s festivities. It was a four-day extravaganza filled with lots of family events. It was B’s brother’s wedding on Friday so the weekend started with a rehearsal and dinner on Thursday, wedding on Friday and a brunch on Sunday. So yeah, I’m pooped but it was all in good fun!
