Marathon Training Update




Guess how many miles I ran today.  Just guess.  Okay, okay, I'll tell you: 
Now, I know what you're thinking:  How do you run twelve miles in below-zero December in Wisconsin?  Well, if you are me, you go to the gym and slog it out on the treadmill.  Not the most fun, but my new best friends help me through it.  Want to meet them?  Here they are:

I'm pretty slow, so for me, twelve miles equals about an hour and twenty-odd minutes.  That's a lot of cable.  I feel like I'm becoming an expert on how to de-clutter a house, and on how to choose clothing that flatters any figure.  Plus, today I learned how to make a pear tart.  Speaking of pears, we have this fruit CSA share that I totally love.  The only thing is, we get a lot of fruit from it, and it comes every two weeks, so we're not really that good at using it all up by the time we get the next box.  And on top of that, we just got a winter vegetable delivery.  So basically right now we are rolling in produce.  Our fridge is insanely full, considering that only two people live here.  But don't worry; we're taking action.  Today I made an apple pie to take to my friend Lindsay's parents' house (she's visiting from San Diego for Christmas), and at this very moment I've got squash curry simmering and mixed root vegetables roasting.  Mmmm.  Karl is napping.  I hope he's hungry when he wakes up!
