Three Things Thursday...........

1) Non running stuff, did I mention that the Green Bay Packers are in the playoffs? People always ask me how I became a Packer fan and I really can't explain how as a kid I fell in love with the team. Kind of like how I fell in love with running, how do you explain your love for running to others?

2) It's the time of year when my team is running double digit miles in some pretty cold temps! I always try to make it as much fun as possible, like Hawaiian shirts over six layers. Should I have Hot Chocolate at the fluids stations???

3) I'll be doing the parking lot loops, since the sidewalks and roads are snow and ice! I have a pair of the cheapo ice grips but they aren't comfortable and you know I need to be comfortable when I run. The sun is suppose to make a cameo appearance in about six days, good thing I put some sunshine in a jar back in July!

I'm always jonesing for a coffee after a long run or race, no matter what the weather, so that's my vote!

Mmmmm hot chocolate mid run might be just about perfect in these crazy temps lately!

Have you ever tried the YakTrax Pro? They run at about $30 for the pair, but they've saved my life in the snow and ice here in Alaska. The first few steps felt weird, but after that it was smooth sailing.

And I secretly have a crush on Aaron Rodgers. Is that weird?
