Wonderful Wednesday

The last few days have been crazy! We have experienced 86 hours straight of snow, with over 4 feet of snow on the ground and it isn't supposed to end until tomorrow. Then we can expect a Noreaster this weekend. I thought it was so funny when we were talking about this at work and a co-worker asked, "Whats a Noreaster?" Now she has lived in New York all her life..Hilarious!!

A Nor'easter is named for the winds that blow in from the northeast and drive the storm up the east coast along the Gulf Stream, a band of warm water that lies off the Atlantic coast. Google it. You will find your answer! Not fun!!

I have signed up for a nice Its a Wonderful 5K on Saturday night. A few people I know from our local Lake Effect Run club are heading there as well. Its at night and the Christmas lights come on while we are running! How awesome is that?!!

I've been feeling under the weather and missed my bike workout yesterday, mainly because I was tired from my honey Snoring and keeping me up 2 nights in a row!. Im hoping Im not coming down with something because I putted along in swimming today. But I was doing drill work so I had to be somewhat slow.

As you guys know my "30th" Birthday is this Sunday and My boyfriend got me the most priceless gift! I love that he knows me and doesn't shower me with jewelry because frankly I dont wear much. So I came home and there was a big package from Swimoutlet.com

Heres what was in it!!


2 swimsuits, Pull Buoy, PT paddles, and Goggles!! Now thats a GIFT!!!

We have been shoveling a lot and that is another downer, But our dog has been making us feel very wanted. He puts his nose right up to the glass and whines for us. Its So funny!


Happy Training!!!
