Just returned from another wonderful evening with my Cooking Light group. We had a winderful evening, as we always do. We had wine, appetizers and desserts (heavy on the wine and appetizers this year!) and can bring a guest in December. Kelly was my guest ... all the way from NY! It was great to see her again. She and Ben are here visiting family.
Let's back up to a less wonderful part of the day. My 8.49 mile run this morning. Yikes. It was a icy with a brisk NW wind and then to top it off it started snowing so I couldn't see the glare ice. Everything had a glaze over it and I had my Yak Trax on. So it was like skating with coils on the bottom of my feet! It took me almost 2 hours to go that distance. On county 22 I was praying that I wouldn't fall through the snowbanks where it wasn't plowed (I didn't). On 19th St NW I was praying I didn't get hit by a car as the sidewalks were just too dangerous (I didn't). By Assissi Heights I just wanted to stay upright (I did). It was nor pretty. But ... I got it done. :-)
Tuesday at 5:30 Byron Team R.E.D. is going to run out at RCTC on the indoor track. Feel free to join them! I'm going to Redwood Room and then the movie Blind Sided otherwise I'd be there. Thursday Team R.E.D. is doing a progressive dinner run starting at O'Leary's at 805 1st Ave NW in Byron. There will be stops at a few other homes before finishing up at the O'Leary's.
