Highlight of the Week: Being able to run in a town I have always wanted to run in – Galena, Illinois. Although, I am not sure if you can call it running. I should have had my snowshoes on instead of my Yak Trax!

- Our Garmin is being really weird about uploading to Connect lately! At first I thought it was a database connection thing, but now I think it may be the watch. Some runs never even upload! Womp womp. That’s okay – I still have the data in the watch. Updated: Garmin fixed the ANT stick issue and the missing runs appeared!
- Friday was my first run this fall/winter in tights (and then I wore them again on Saturday… and Sunday…).
- Only 8 days left of the streak!
