Saturday was the 8th annual Celebrate Life 5k at the Johnson Family YMCA. I thought I could celebrate the fact that I live in Florida and we would have beautiful March weather…. well the weather was beautiful but a little on the chilly side! 38 degrees at 7:00 in the morning! For some, this is perfect weather… for me… this is COLD.
According to Jeff Galloway, 40-49 degree weather means long sleeve T, shorts or tights or wind pants, sock or mittens and gloves. Click here for more info. So I wore gloves, long sleeve top, capri pants and a headband that covers my ears. The bonus was my not-so-athletic sunglasses because they kept the wind out of my eyes!
My stretch goal was to run a 7:30 mile pace. This would definitely be a record if I could do it. Besides feeling cold the whole run, I really did feel great and was staying on pace. I ended the run in 3rd place! Time was 24:30…. 7:26 pace. I ACTUALLY DID IT!
So what do you do after you break another PR?? Well, I reward myself, of course. The day’s agenda included a mani-pedi with my best friend. I choose the color “hot n spicy” by OPI because this matches my running shirt I’m wearing next week for the River Run…. correction… in 6 DAYS!!!!
When I think of March I think of a few things…. day light savings, spring weather, the beach, spring break and GIRL SCOUT COOKIES! I have huge weaknesses for #1 cookies, #2 chocolate and #3 good causes. When these 3 are combined you get girl scout cookies… and my money!
When did cookies go from $3 to $3.50 to $4? When did the box get smaller and the calories get larger? These questions might always be a mystery but what’s not a mystery is that I love LOVE them! My top 2 favorite (because who says you can only have 1 favorite) are thin mints and samoas. I only bought 1 box of thin mints <so far>. Of the two packs of cookies in this box, I can honestly say, one is gone!
Do you have What is your favorite Girl Scout Cookie? What do you do to treat yourself?
Hope you had a great weekend! Here’s to the first week of March!
