6 Stupendous Miles

My runs have felt soo good lately. I think that break really helped. I ran 6 miles in under an hour yesterday and felt awesome afterwards. YAY!

On a funny note. Yesterday when I was at the gym running--there was this dude behind grunting like he was on the toilet. At first I was concerned like perhaps there was something wrong and I was tempted to glance back. But his grunt continued every time I heard his weights lift from their setting, and I figured he was alright. Grunters usually bug me period--but this guy really sounded like he was straining over the lou. And the noise continued for the duration of my gym visit...Odd duckling.

The next few days will be bittersweet here in Minnesota. I'm really looking forward to the holidays but not looking forward to the Mammoth of a snow storm that is headed our way. I've heard estimates as high as 20"!!! And the tires on my car are really bad. Which really sucks because my car is only 2 years old.

Anyways, hope you all have the best of holidays!!

Congratulations on the great running! I'm with you, grunting while weight-lifting is pretty annoying. Did you hear about that guy who got kicked out of his gym a few years ago for grunting?

Grunters REALLY make me uncomfortable. I mean, is that really necessary? I manage to lift some pretty heavy weight without grunting in the slightest. Annoying! Anyway, Happy Holidays, girl! I hope you aren't being eaten by snow right now!
