New Discoveries.

4 Feb

Thursday night, I discovered that a salad is not a good pre-run meal.

Friday, I discovered that it’s actually kind of nice that everything in Denver shuts down with a big snowstorm, because I get to work from home.

I also discovered that working from home with nothing to do is only slightly less boring that being at work with nothing to do.

I discovered that it takes two feet of snow for Denver to actually plow main side roads with any sort of decency {these pictures were taken Friday morning – it continued snowing all day and we ended up with about 2 feet).

This afternoon, I discovered that the plows still don’t always do a very good job because I almost got stranded at the library.

This morning, I discovered that running 11 miles, or 115 circles, on the indoor track is surprisingly painless with a friend. (Thanks Heidi!)

I also discovered that with no wind and no hills, I can run a 10:45/mile pace for 11 miles…

…and that despite good intentions and a camera, I can still forget to take a picture of my first-ever blogger meetup, and instead make do with a crappy picture of me in my bathroom.

This afternoon, I discovered that the day before the Super Bowl is an even worse day to grocery shop than the day before Thanksgiving.

I also discovered (again) that one of my all-time favorite kinds of candy is Australian Style licorice. Seriously, try it. It’s amazing. (I found it at the regular grocery store in the candy section.)

And finally, I discovered that Reese’s peanut butter eggs are just as delicious as I remember them. Mmmm…

Have you discovered anything new this weekend?

    Ha. I was driving home and thought “gah! I totally forgot to get a photo!” so obviously all the circles made us silly!

    And thank you…the 115 laps weren’t nearly as bad as I was prepared for. But I did fall asleep on the couch as soon as I finished eating lunch!

    You two are amazing !! That’s some hard core dedication to your long run. It’s cool that two midwest girls found each other in CO. 🙂

    We haven’t gotten any snow, so I’m actually a little envious… your pictures are so pretty!

    By the way, Do you find your Aspaeis shorts roll down at all? I discovered that mine roll down too much to wear out running. I did wear them for recovery yesterday, but with all the rolling I wondered if I should have bought them smaller.

    Dang, look at the snow! Glad you were able to run in circles with a friend – that would make it way better! Discoveries – they are everywhere, but this weekend I discovered a little more of the Minneapolis fashion scene with a few other fashion bloggers – who also love Jesus. That is probably my favorite discovery of the weekend.
    Much love,
    B

    @Running in Mommyland – I didn’t have any problems with my Aspareris shorts rolling down but maybe because I was wearing other shorts over them?

    @B. in the Know – That’s awesome!
