Spiky to the Rescue

I was out the door a half hour before sunrise this morning! It seemed bright because of the snow that fell in the wee hours of the morning and was continuing to fall. What I thought were called "Icers" for my hiking boots are actually called "Spiky" and they fit my runners perfectly and were perfect for today's conditions. Spiky is a more fun name, I think! I was happy to see that my favourite little Canadian Tire route had been plowed except for two big snow banks I had to maneuver over but not happy to realize it is not 5km in distance, thanks to my brand new Garmin! Because it came up short, I ran around a bit once I got closer to home just to bring it up over 5km and this is what I came up with:

Time: 35:20
Distance: 5.12km
Pace: 6:54 min/km

There will be two more windows of opportunity to run before calling 2008 a wrap!

Today's run is done, now it's time to celebrate with Ms M and Lady Bell. Today will be a Christmas celebration, a New Year's celebration but the best reason to celebrate will be because on December 22nd Lady Bell was declared cancer free! WooHoo! Yippie! Yeehaw! Yahoo!
