Howdy Strangers!

it has been a while since I posted and many things happened, some of which isn’t suitable for the running blog, so I’ll spare you the heartache. 

From a running front, we decided that we’d had enough of the crappy PA weather and went to the Dominican Republic for a week. 80F most days. Beautiful sun and sand. Ah. Decompression. It was lovely. 

However, I only managed to get out running once for three miles. Lazy, I know, but sometimes you need a break and it was good to spend some quality time with my kids. 

The shirt I didn’t buy… Too cheesy, even for a cyclist like me. 

Now we are back in PA and adjustingto traipsing through snow again. 

Today I went for a run/walk with my friend and did 6.3 miles of the Chester Valley Trail from Malvern. The trail was completely cleared of snow and ice. It also reached a balmy 54F while we were out. Phew! Our average pace was 13:49 for the whole distance but we only ran for 4.5 miles. It was good to be outside though. 

One observation from my travels: what is it with islanders and their obsession with Spam? It was the same in Hawaii. To me it is just a Monty-Python routine…

    SPAM seems to be more popular outside North America then in it. In some countries I’ve been to people display it in their homes as if it was a magical meet from America.
