Yesterday I had to work and really though the rain would deter people from shopping but apparently not. The store was semi busy all day. Pretty consistent. I however, did not get out to run before work like had planned because the rain and winds were pretty bad . . . and I had gone to bed too late.
Today however I decided no matter what, I was running. The rain was coming in side ways but I bundled up and hit the streets. I decided to take a few different streets, one of which led to a bike/walking path that follows one of the main strips here in El Dorado Hills. The strip is fairly flat which is exactly what I needed and it was kind of pretty.
I was having run. It really felt great to be running again and I realize now that my only chances at running lately are on the weekends, namely Sundays. Weekday mornings I'll just have to suffer on the elliptical.
After my run I conquered some retail stores (ugh, not fun the last week before Xmas). Vans and the Peanut have been two peas in a pod all weekend. Yesterday, they came to visit me at work but prior to visiting me, Vans finally had one of his biggest cravings . . . The Squeeze Inn burger.
The Squeeze Inn makes the biggest, greasiest, cheesiest and probably one of the most expensive burgers around. To me, it is rather disgusting:
Gross. That is fried cheese.
The Peanut however is like her momma and just goes straight for these instead:
Despite all the rain we've had this weekend, I am happy that I went out an ran. It might not have been far but definitely farther than I have run in a while and it felt great. Later, Vans, the Peanut and I walked our neighborhood hills checking out all the Christmas lights.
Right now the Peanut is really into Christmas lights and she knows that she gets to have a candy cane every time. Not sure what we will do when the holidays are over and the lights have to come down.
Looking forward to a short work week which will hopefully add a little extra time to get a run in here and there plus no work on Saturday! Yipee!
