sometimes it’s best to wait a day

The wind woke me this morning – howling through the trees and banging against the bedroom windows.  Thank goodness Peter loves me — so when I woke him at 5:15am to check the weather for me — he didn’t mind.  I’m so lucky.  I married a jewel of a man.

Conditions were icy coupled with a 20-mph wind.   Peter scanned the weather predictions for tomorrow, and that appears to be the better of the two days.  Since I’m off work tomorrow, I decided, there in the darkness of our bedroom, to swap out my 22 mile run from today to tomorrow.   The temps might only be a few degrees warmer tomorrow, but the winds should only be 1/2 what they are today, and THAT will make a big difference.  I want to give myself the best chance at this one! So I’ll run Monday’s 3 miles today — and get another good night sleep.  Tomorrow would be the day.

Besides, it seems kind of fitting that I spend the last day of 2012 doing the most challenging thing I’ve ever done. What a way to end the year!

2012 — we have one last date together.  And Oh Boy — Is It A Doozy!!    We will DEF! be popping the champagne cork tomorrow night.  Although the chances of my making midnight just went waaaay down.  LOL

Ciao for now….Diane

About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
