So…..that was the temperature I woke up to this morning. You know what that means, don’t you? Yep! My long run was on a treadmill! Hooray! We know how I feel about that!
Isn’t that the truth?? Although, this run wasn’t nearly as bad as some other long runs I’ve done on the treadmill. Now, THAT was a long run.
I am just keeping my fingers crossed that it gets warmer soon! It’s frickin’ cold up here!
Very aptly, A and I went to see the movie Frozen on Friday night. HILARIOUS. OMG. I am SO serious. We were laughing harder than the children. Well, let’s be honest–all of the adults were laughing more than the children. It is a FANTASTIC Disney movie. I really think I will buy this one once it comes out on DVD. It is a MUST see.
(BTW, as I am writing this, Miss Envy is having a dream–her little feet are moving and her breathing got heavy–I wonder if she is playing flyball or herding Callie 🙂 ) Speaking of Envy, she turned 9 months today!!! Can you believe it!? Time has absolutely flown! She is going to be 1 before I know it, and that is just crazy talk!
In random Fitbit news, I earned my “badge” for hitting 500 miles on my Fitbit since I got it at the end of December! That’s a lot of miles!
But, let’s get down to business. Total miles for the week: 26.92. Total time running for the week: 4 hours 4 minutes. On to Week 5 of San Diego training!

I made these muffins as a little snack on that LONG drive to South Carolina I made over the winter holidays. My Mom and sister said they were a fan. I will make them again. They definitely deserve a second try. Food Network recipes are often pretty good. At least the ones I choose to make are.
– 2 cups flour
– 1 teaspoon baking powder
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– 1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
– 2/3 cup sugar
– 2 eggs
– 1 teaspoon vanilla
– 1/3 cup milk
– Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together.
– Beat the softened butter and sugar until fluffy. Then beat in eggs and vanilla. Slowly add the flour mixture and the milk in alternating batches.
– Divide among 12 prepared muffin cups and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 350*.
