What I Did Last Night

After a day at work that sort of made me want to bang my head against the wall 4,562 times I fled and met up with  a friend for a beer, food and Scrabble. I knew we were at the right place when the bartender clapped when we busted out the game and then would stop by periodically to comment on our words (he was only impressed with "pithy" and "ova.")

At first it wasn't snowing at all. Then, a little bit. Then, a lot. And suddenly the roads were covered. Ran out the bar door, brushed off the car and slowly headed home.

As I walked in the door I said to Bill that I wanted to go for a run. We did some chores, sat around and then Bill asked me when I wanted to leave for a run. It was 9:45. We were out the door five minutes later for a 3-mile happy run through the snow. Cold, quiet and beautiful. Scrabble followed by running therapy is awesome for eliminating work brain.

Bill is in adventure race training mode. 

Snow + night + run = happy.

Can you see me?
Unfortunately we didn't get piles of snow dumped on us. Hopefully just enough to take the snowshoes out for a spin in a little bit, though. Also my goal for 2011 is to post 8,412 pictures of me in the snow. Hopefully more of it will fall from the sky soon.

Awesome pictures! We've had a lot of snow here in MN this winter and it's just beautiful. I agree, running therapy is awesome for eliminating work brain. :)

Oh...I LOVE scrabble. I suck at it. I'm a three or four letter word girl :-(

But...I can spell "stylish"...and I awarded you The Stylish Blogger Award on my blog.
Can't wait to learn more about you!

Great! I am a big scrabble fan too. Love this post, as it is a very familiar scenario. "Do you want to go for a run? Well do you want to go?"
