Weekly Roundup - February 16th

What a week with another winter storm slamming the east coast of the US.  We had some icy conditions here in North Carolina that included power outages in many areas. Fortunately, some very kind friends invited us to dinner as we suffered only about 7 hours in the house without any power. Our trash can was iced over and we were unable to open it, and the amount of yard debris Tom picked up yesterday was huge!

Thankfully, we have been blessed with a gorgeous weekend, including temperatures into the 50's! Yippee. Today I will be taking a long run with one of my Without Limits teammates which will be quite fun. Normally, I am on my own for long runs, and Meghan agreed to meet me and yes, I am excited! Christine has been my only other training partner and since we live far apart, it is only occasionally that we run together.

Friday was Valentine's Day and these awesome treats arrived in my mailbox.  They were perfect for a Tigger lover! Thanks to my lovely daughter for making my day extra special.

  1. What a great workout week! Glad that you got some relief from the cold. It's pretty bad when the trash can won't even open.

  2. That Tigger Valentine's box is precious.

  3. I just love that Tigger Valentine's Day box! :0)
