runs with friends

i've realized lately that i don't talk about my daily runs much. i've tried putting thought into it, but mostly i feel pretty unbloggable on a day-to-day basis.

with the exception of this weekend of course, before terri (one of my longest blog-buddies) un-invites me from coming up for boston in april. terri came down to visit her dad me and in addition to being lazy/eating m&m's, we got to run together twice!

we got a late start saturday after a lazy morning and went out for an easy 5-miler in 50-ish degrees; a warm welcome for my boston friend. sunday's weather was not as nice to us as it steadily drizzled the whole time, but we got in another easy, gab-filled run. once back inside the house the rain stopped and the sun came out. go figure.

saturday 12/11 mid-day run: 5.02 miles, 45:41 (avg pace 9:06), 50*
sunday 12/12 am run: 4.5 miles, 40:58 (avg pace 9:06), 37*

three things you should know about terri:
  1. she makes delicious brownies.
  2. she is concerned about my heart-health and buys me dark chocolate m&m's.
  3. she's a running-sandbagger, always talking about being slow, and then she waxed me up the last hill on our run sunday morning. home field advantage i think not.

disclaimer about jill's gift exchange: i have begun to procure gifts for my secret santa but i still make no guarantees you get it before the post office shuts down for christmas. course you won't know this until you get it and find out i was your tardy secret santa, but you've been forewarned :)

  1. Very nice introduction to Teri and you hint at dark chocolate m&ms being your favorite, which would be good 'cause they're my favorite, too!

    I also don't really talk much about my daily running. I say what I did but usually pass-over it quickly because I don't have the adjectives or verbage to make it interesting.

  2. tufts 10k shirt! holler!!! it's nice to have a friend to run with, love long time blog buddies. we're becoming older and older as "blogs" it is interesting how the "age" also changes us/our blogs over time just like it does to us as people in real life as well.

  7. Reading this made me think two things:
    1) I wish I had friends to run with (this makes it sound like I don't have friends. I do, they just aren't runners);
    2) I'm jealous of the weather you had over the weekend.

  13. A coworker and I were just discussing all the different flavors that M&M's now come in! I'm not a big fan of dark choc-I guess I'll just have to keep "swinging" to keep my heart in check!
    Top 5:
    -Coconut
    -Peanut
    -Almond
    -Mint
    -Plain
    They are just soooo pretty, they just can't be bad for you!
    I'm thinking of making the personalized ones after May!!

  15. Lindsay, this was such a nice post. You have no idea what it means to me. And funny, but I seem to have the same photo to put on my blog?! LOL. And hey, we need to emphasize the sexy leg-pop!

    It cracks me up that people recognized my race shirt - that's totally awesome. That is seriously still one of my favorite races.

    I absolutely loved our runs together this weekend, and yes, I did come down to see you and my dad. You were not just a convenient place to stay, but a part of my trip, and part of the reason I came down south. I truly feel very comfortable around you and have from the moment we first started talking "online" and in person.

    I miss you already.

    Terri

    p.s. Glad you guys liked the brownies, even if they were a bit SMooshed. lol

  17. How sweet of you to introduce your running buddy. 50 degrees. wow, you are one lucky lady with that temp. I hate cold and it is nothing but freezing here. Here we go with the m and ms. lol. dark chocolate? Not having anything to blog about and not blogging about personal runs. I say blog about it Lindsay! Go for it. You might be surprised at the amount of people that might be interested. Take care.

  20. I haven't felt very bloggable lately either :( I feel like since I am not running...and hardly working out at all, I have nothing to say. I mean, I have a lot to say, just not about what my blog is about. Make any sense? I have a 5k opportunity this weekend, and my one reason for doing it, is to have a reason to blog. Lameoooooo.

  25. just reading this gave me a craving, brutal time of the year.

  26. A good friend buys you Dark Choco M&M's. A great friend suggests you Google a study about visualizing eating M&M's which may help quell your cravings. Thank me later.

    And, how cool that I've already gotten my x-mas present from you. Those suckers that wanted material possessions, well, they'll learn.
