This morning I took some time off of work in the morning to join our friend Ryan for a run. Today is Ryan’s 29th Birthday and he was running 29 miles throughout the day to celebrate. He ran to our house and then I joined him for 8 miles of the first 16 he was running. It was a freezing 1 degree, below zero with the wind chill. I am not one for running in super freezing temperatures, but I made an exception for today. My hands were so frozen even with doubling up on running gloves. Halfway through the run I grabbed an old puffy coat and an extra pair of gloves. I will definitely be investing in more cold weather gear if I ever run in these types of temps again.

After my part of the run, I got a couple of pictures to document this insanity.

Happy Birthday Ryan!!

After work and chilling with the hubby I jumped on the treadmill and got in my other 7 miles.
