Well, Friday and Saturday's decent weather was replaced by snow flurries and chill yesterday. Thankfully, I did do the 12 miles Saturday even though it was a little chilly. I had to run 5 yesterday, but decided 4.36 was probably enough under the circumstances. Funny, how just a month ago, I was thrilled at running in 32 degree weather and now, I scoff. Although, today, I think it was just as cold when I ran but the sun was shinning and what a difference that made.
This afternoon, I was listening to Running to Disney on the computer while attempting to do some work. Emily was sitting at the table with me. Gordon was talking about the Disneyland Half Marathon and all Emily heard was Disneyland. The following conversation ensued:
Me: Yes, Disneyland. He's talking about a half-marathon. Do you want to run it with me?
Pause while Emily thinks...
Emily: Yes, but you have to run slow.
Me: Don't worry. If you run with me, I will run slow (thinking I will be carrying you rather than running remembering the Blueberry (Not So) Fun Run back in September).
Another pause while Emily thinks...
Emily: Is is a llooooooonnngg way?
Me: Yes, it's pretty far.
Emily: No. I don't want to run it.
Well, so much for the Disneyland Half and Emily.
