(... and a few sledding photos.)
Currently, I've ran 958.81 miles in 2012. I'm less than 42 miles from my FIRST EVER 1,000 mile year! My previous best was 911 miles last year, and I posted that I broke that PR at the end of last month.
Friday night, we got some snow. About a half inch stuck around, and both Pharmie and I got in a run on Saturday because another few inches were predicted for Saturday night / Sunday morning.
A little snow still around on Saturday afternoon,
leading to just a few icy / slushy spots on the trail.
Sunday, it REALLY SNOWED! We were going to take Henry sledding for the first time. Here are 10 quick photos:
Heading to the park in the snow.
I've never seen snow "fill in" a chain link fence before!
And look at how it's piled up 6 inches on top.
Henry's not so sure about the snow...
Pulling Henry and Momma to the park.
Henry and I ready for his first run!
Crabby faces at the bottom. He didn't like sledding.
Henry and Momma ready to try it!
Nope. He didn't like sledding with Momma either. Time to head home.
Leaving the park and all the kids behind.
The saddest snow angel EVER!!!
And then as it was still snowing yesterday afternoon, I decorated our front tree with 1,200 lights:
On July 3rd, I went on a run with Henry that put my total yearly mileage at over 50% with him (around 498 TOTAL miles, and 251 of those were with Henry). Since then, my 2012 running miles have always been over 50% with him - July and August were REALLY "Henry heavy". Well, now that winter's truly arrived, I might end the year with under 50% of my miles with Henry. I'm at 958.8 total miles, and my "Henry miles" are at 481.5. Unless something horrible happens, I should be able to break 1,000 miles. But unless we get a mild stretch for a few days when classes are over and I'm hanging out with Henry, we won't break 500 miles together.
STILL, it's been a GREAT year! Happy winter, everyone!
