Sipping Ice Cold Smoothies in the Hot Box Called Florida
Oh Friday, you are gorgeous, funny and smart. I just love you.
I’ve been waiting for this week to end since it started. All year long the days seemed to fly by but lately they’ve been crawling. I think I’m just in need of a vacation!
My mom and I are heading to NYC next month and I couldn’t be more excited. The only issue is that I have zero pieces of “winter clothing.” The heaviest jacket I own is made of tech material that can wick my sweat away and keep me cool. Not sure that’s what I need for a December in New York!
Even if NYC is only in the 60s it’s going to feel frigid to me since our temps haven’t dropped yet at all. Fort Lauderdale is experiencing a record high for November. I know I’m not the only person in Fort Lauderdale still whipping up ice coldIce C smoothies!
Supposedly there is a chance for rain on Sunday. I’m not usually a fan of running in the rain but I think a little drizzle might make the half marathon more enjoyable. Running a race in 80+ degrees is just not fun. Been there, done that, not a fan… but running in 80 degrees is better than not running at all 🙂 .
I’ve officially stopped going to physical therapy. I’m still doing all of my stretches every night but I am feeling really good. My hips aren’t tight, my back doesn’t hurt, I have had any foot numbness, etc. in almost two weeks now. I am eternally grateful for feeling better. Chronic pain is no joke and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.
Anyway, Fort Lauderdalians, what are you doing on Thanksgiving morning? How about a Turkey Trot and Paddle along Las Olas and A1A? Sounds like a plan to me!
I’ve never participated in a Turkey Trot since my Thanksgiving mornings are usually a bit hectic and I need to get my run in before 6am, but this year I may give it a shot!
Do you run a Turkey Trot every year?
Can I borrow a jacket for New York? 🙂
Have a great weekend!
Wish me luck at my half marathon this weekend. It’s just for fun, but with your luck I may avoid bad weather! haha
