  • Bobbi and I figured out Tuesday early evening is a good time for both our schedules for a run. I hope it’s something we can do a few times a month!
  • The cold weather and wind came this week. I wore long sleeves for the first time this season! And gloves! Woo hoo!
  • We had a busy week and weekend, and I didn’t plan well to work out much. Gah. Good thing I am not training for anything…
  • I was in Iowa for a college class reunion this week and got the chance to run in downtown Des Moines. There is a lot of neat public art along the pedestrian walkway there. And some super cool pedestrian bridges! I hope I get a chance to run it sometime in the daylight (Sunday was NOT that day – I needed my sleep after a full day on Saturday).
