Friday ended up being a rest day but my legs ached in the car. If you follow me on FB you saw that I posted as we sat in traffic on I-95 and passed the mile markers, I was imagining myself running past them... beating the cars. It was weird. I even saw my outfit (new blue skirt with white compression socks and white long-sleeve shirt). I literally shook my head to snap of it. Runner first?
We made it eventually, and I confirmed with my sister that we would be running around 6am. I was so excited that it was going to be a low of 43 and a high of 68, that I pack a skirt. Well, at 5:30 am, it was only 31 degrees... and so I was going to FREEZE my tushy off. Thankfully, I found a long sleeve shirt in my bag and some tights (not cold gear though). I kept telling myself if I just ran for 5 minutes I would warm up. It took way longer. The plan was to get 3 in before Janet and then come back and get her for 3 more.
I made it out the door and literally contemplated going back inside for the next 5 minutes. It took me a 1/2 mile to warm up. It was so cold... I haven't run this early in the morning for a long time. And since it was dark and a strange area, I was spooked easily. At one point this big black dog ran barking across the street in front of me and disappeared into the woods. I kept thinking it would come after me although I never saw it again.
We made it back and had to get ready to go to my nephew's last Basketball game. It was cool that we were able to cheer him on. Daniel scored at least 2 baskets. He played awesome and passed the ball to his teammates too. It was fun watching him play.

While Daniel was playing I took many pictures of my niece Sydney. She is adorable and a handful... she wanted to walk around everywhere. Kiera was a good mommy to her. This was the best pic of the three of them... just happens my face was cut out. Who needs to see me, right?
After the basketball game, we headed to my grandmother's birthday party and met with my parents and aunts and uncles. It was a nice time to be there to celebrate with my grandma. Here are some pics:
