Holdridge Lakes

It was a crazy 19 degrees this morning on our way to church.

I was planning to meet Jama at Holdridge Metropark for a trail run.
She sent out a couple text messages giving me an invitation to back out.
It seemed crazy to run in weather this cold, However; there was NO SNOW.
I had been looking forward to this long run with her all week knowing it was going to be colder than cold. Or as mom says "Colder that a witches tit in a cast iron bra."

I love having someone to keep me accountable. Lets be real..How many of YOU ran out there today???
The cold weather scared me off earlier this week as I ran in circles at the gym all warm and cozy.

Jama and I had a great run. We got lost 3 times in 3 miles! How does that happen? By me navigating!
I am so busy looking down that I am not really paying attention. But then if I was paying attention we still would have most likely gotten lost just not that bad.
At mile 8 I tripped over some apples but recovered pretty good to knock out another 2 miles. Jama stepped on a thorn that went through her shoe into her foot..Crazy fun though!
We did the North loop 2 times and the west loop once and somewhere go lost 3 times that we know of.

The map didn't help a whole lot, we carried one with us!

I am going to bed. I ate like crap tonight and I am feeling it! UGH.



  1. Sounds like a great cold run!! I just ran in a long sleeve for the first time this past week it was 56 degrees LOL.. I ended up taking it off and tying it around my neck! I did run today but it was in the 60's. Have a great week! Carri~A Running bee
