Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run.

Alright, it's not snowmageddon but being from Canada it is always thoroughly amusing to see general panic when ice and snow hit the Atlanta area. We just don't have the equipment to deal with these kinds of conditions, and this doesn't happen often around here. So, I shouldn't complain about the weather because it has forced me to take a rest day, which would not have happened otherwise. I knew I needed a real rest day, this was not lost on me, but the idea of not doing anything is hard for me to wrap my head around. I have been icing the knees, using the stick and foam roller like I am supposed to, and trying to enjoy the break. Here's the problem, I want some endorphins, I feel like a bit of a junkie, I want my hit. Plus, time away from training for the half is making me a bit nervous.

As for the 100 Day Challenge, I went to groove yesterday and shook it for a while. Today, we played outside and took a walk which counts towards it so, I have 10 days under my belt for the challenge, only 90 more to go.

In race news, I talked to Karen about running the Polar Bear Run on the 22nd, and I spoke with Sarah and Shannon about doing the Tartan Trot 10K on the 29th. Plus, I am looking ahead to other races so I can complete the Run For The Bling Of It Challenge. Karen and I were chatting about what our next big races would be after the Princess Half, and we are definitely signing up for The Peachtree Road Race, and we decided that we are going to Vegas for the Rock n' Roll half marathon in December. Lots to look forward to!

Alright, I'll leave you with pictures from playing out in the icy muck outside. School's out again tomorrow, let's hope Bella doesn't go completely insane from being at home.
Ghetto sledding!

That's how we roll in Peachtree City! (Not my golf cart, I'm not that cool yet, but I will be eventually)

Sticking your tongue out helps when taking pictures.

Bella did a pretty good job with this one.

I am dying! Is that what you'd call laundry basket sledding?? Very creative! ;-) And I love the tongue out picture. Sometimes it really does help to have your tongue out!!

OMG, YES!!!! Girl, we are soooo totally meeting up in Vegas!!!!!!
