Weekend Wrap Up: Rudolph the Red-Nosed Runner Edition

Saturday morning snow.

This is my cold face.


Old Made Good.

Who has 2 thumbs & just ran 10 miles?  This girl.

I watched Midnight In Paris.  I liked it.  I had heard mixed reviews & I honestly don't love Owen Wilson, so I wasn't expecting to like it, but I totally did.  It's hard not to like a movie about Paris.  Also, I was really into Rachel McAdams' hair & wardrobe throughout the movie.


It was super cold & snowy when I woke up on Saturday, so I decided to bake.  I ended up making the browned butter cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting again.  I quickly realized that it was in no one's best interest to leave me alone in the house all day with 24 cupcakes, so I took my show on the road.  My first stop was Jessica's house because she's pregnant & I knew I could unload a lot of cupcakes.  We ran to Old Made Good, which I've been wanting to check out FOREVER.  I loved that place!  Both owners were in there & they were so nice.  Jessica got an awesome necklace & I got these cute arrow earrings.  J'adore!

Back on the road, cupcakes still in tow, I headed over to Dave & Alexis' house, where I unloaded another good portion of cupcakes.  I tried to find more people to deliver cupcakes to, but a lot of people weren't home.  Accepting defeat, I headed back home, where I promptly ate another cupcake.

That night, we went to dinner with our friends Mike & Amanda.  Mike's birthday is today (happy birthday, Mike!), so it was an early birthday celebration.  It was also a great opportunity to unload those last few cupcakes.  Success!


On Sunday, I awoke to a balmy 21 degrees, wind chill of 12 degrees.  PERFECT for a long, outdoor run.  I put on as many layers as I could comfortably fit into & then headed out to meet my running posse.  We met at Bongo Java on Belmont, ran to Bong Java at Five Points, then turned around & ran back.  It's a 10 mile loop, although according to RunKeeper, it was actually 10.34.  Whatevs, it could have been 100 miles as far as I was concerned because by the time we finished I could feel neither my face nor my legs, except for my feet.  Oh, I felt those.

The jury is still out on which was harder, running in 12 degrees, or running 10 miles.  I will say this, my legs have gone back to normal, but my nose, a full 24 hours later, is still red.  Apparently I have wind burn, but I look sunburned.  It's confusing.  Whatever.  Point?  I'm a badass.
