Day off together

I looked at the forecast last week and saw that Friday was going to be 70 degrees! They were calling for a drastic temperature drop the weekend that included snow flurries, so I decided to request the day off work. I told Carl my plans he took the day off with me :-) We wanted to enjoy the last warm day of the year!

We got up and walked to Tim Hortons and grabbed a coffee and a muffin. We were able to sit on their small patio and enjoy breakfast together.

We then walked over to Kroger as we were out of bananas since we have a shake everyday! I love my Shakeology and Carl loves Orgain. We had to get a few other things too, but didn't get too much that we couldn't carry home :-)

 We knew we wanted to get a run in and the sun is setting SO early now! We got in the car and parked at Northmoor Park and decided to run north to Antrim Park. At about mile 1 or a bit after, we saw Darris Blackford ( Director of The Columbus Marathon) running South. We have met him several times so we stopped and talked with him for a few minutes. That is one thing about the running community that I LOVE, is that you start to make connections and meeting so many like minded people. It's amazing what running has done for Carl and I.

We got to Antrim and the water fountain WAS working! It's almost Thanksgiving and you never know with the parks if they have turned off the fountains or not. We grabbed a drink of water and ran 2 laps around the park and headed  back south to the car.

It was a beautiful day and I'm so happy Carl and I got to spend the last warm day together doing what we love. I'm so blessed to have a guy who loves doing things that I love and enjoys being with me :-)

Now, I can't wait for Spring to get here already!!
