At no time while living in any part of Florida should a person require 2 pairs of pants, 2 shirts, a heavy sweatshirt, and gloves to run. Never. I left about 5:50 this morning wearing said outfit. It was 16 degrees. Yes folks, it was 16 degrees in the sunshine state. (It’s 7:40 now and only 17 degrees) I think I could have done without the second shirt; I was feeling a bit overheated by the end of the first mile.
Here’s a few pictures from our frozen state for you.
I have a bucket I keep outside to collect rain water for my plants. This is what was on top of the bucket last night. OMG. Ice!!!!!!! The kids were loving this.
Hannah thought it was crazy!
This is our mailbox. Normally it’s green, but today is a nice shade of frozen. ;) This was after my run this morning; you can see my big foot at the bottom. I think my calves are still slightly frozen.
The sun was just coming up as I got back. I love that time of the morning. I hate getting out of bed so early, especially when it’s so darn cold, but I love it when I’m out there and when I accomplish what I set out to do. This morning was just over 3 miles.
My poor, dirty bucket was frozen again this morning. I’ll have to show the girls when they finally get out of bed. They better get up soon!
This should be our last extremely cold morning. Well, at least I think it’s going to be our last one. I like cooler weather, but this is crazy! We are still in Florida, right? Yep, I see palm trees, but I think they’re frozen right now.
