Our Winter storm yesterday whimpered out in our area. We had snow but nothing too exciting. My hubby though was in central Illinois and was stuck in a hotel last night but at least he was safely off the roads. Because of the weather ,I cancelled my Y-Me support group meeting and took a short spin on the treadmill while watching American Idol. It's getting to the part that I enjoy watching every week.

For Valentine's Day every year, my hubby and son cook my daughter and I dinner. Because he has been out of town and will be home late we are delaying it until Sunday. So it's pizza for supper tonight.It's always a highlight. My legs were tired today so I gave myself a day off with a promise to myself to workout for an hour tomorrow.

I was hoping to get my new Garmin in the mail today but the snowstorm affected delivery. But I did get something else new:

Yak Trax ! Vickie suggested them. After Sunday's run,I thought I would give them a shot. I need a 4 hour run this weekend and I really doubt if the weather will be much better. Who said running was cheap?? I am anxious to give them a shot.

Waddling to answer the door-pizza is here............

Mmmmmm. Pizza. I'll be right over! tee hee.

I have Yak Traks but I've never actually used them because it requires running outside when it's *cold* out, ha ha! You'll have to let me know how that goes.

Happy Valentine's Day! :)

Yaktrax work great. I run in them on my trail races.

4 hours in the snow - yikes. It will be great to have a new toy. You'll love the company.

Vickie said...

Somehow we got spared from too much storm too. Glad to see you found the Yak Trax. I'm debating whether to run outside this morning with them. Its REALLY cold today.

I'm interested in your opinion on your Yak Traks.

i saw someone running with those yak trax when i ran in a snowy race on 01-Jan. I was envious. I saw them in the store the other day and just couldn't bring myself to buy them...only because I never asked the person running with them how she liked them. So let us know your opinion!! I'll be back at that store in a few weeks and if you like them, i might pick them up!!
