Dashing through the snow, to get my miles in…slid on some black ice, and went home again.
Actually – that wasn’t the song. I have a better one below…The 12 Days of Dopey Christmas! Because you know…. its only 12 days to Christmas and holy crow – 21 days to DOPEY! Yay!!
Let me just say first, I am SO happy I have a treadmill. Because even tho I had only 10 miles on my schedule for Sunday, it wouldn’t have happened without one.
I got about a 1/10 of a mile from my house and stopped to admire this winter wonderland.
The next step, black ice, foot out from under me and I decided it’s WAY too close to Dopey to do anything stupid. (cold? sure. snow? sure. Ice? no way.)
So I went home, swapped fleece for shorts and knocked out 9 miles on the treadmill and 2 episodes of Haven on Netflix.
While it wasn’t the training run I had hoped for… all roads lead to Dopey. Even the indoor ones.
But you know what happens when you spend 90 minutes on a treadmill? You get creative. Even while watching a great show, its not always enough to keep you going. And mine started thinking about what I want for Christmas…from a Disney runner’s standpoint.
So, let me present…the 12 Days of Dopey Christmas!
