Workout: evening @ outdoor road races (1 miler + 4 miler = 5 miles)
This was just an evening of C-R-A-Z-Y! Who does something exercise-related on NYE... IN SUB-ZERO TEMPS?!!
In case Fahrenheit isn't your thang, here's the Celsius conversion:
It wasn't just running 5 miles, either. You have to include the 'standing around and waiting for the race(s) to start' time + 'standing around and waiting for your finisher's sweatshirt' time + 'standing around and eating your complimentary scoop of gelato' time!
A special thank you to all of the volunteers, especially the ones who braved the cold to keep things under control and cheer us on!
BTW, elite runners, what are you trying to prove by racing in summer attire in the dead of winter? I was bundled up and still thought I could've used another layer!
face: Vegan 'Complexion Zen' Soap by Bunny Butt Apothecary
hair: Vegan Wild Strawberry Fields Salty Dawg Creme Shampoo & Intense Hair Conditioner by GudonyaToo
body: Mayan Gold with Polka Dots by BeautifulSoaps
My order from BeautifulSoaps had just arrived, and I was able to tear through the box before heading out for my evening of 'fun'. I chose this particular soap because no matter the outcome, I deserved a gold medal for my valiant efforts.
Mayan Gold isn't just a pretty bar of soap. The polka dots are scented with jasmine essential oil, patchouli essential oil and vanilla musk fragrance oil. All of those scents + Mayan Gold essential oil blend into a sensual motley of "ooooohs".
Naughty Points: 1 scoop of Piccomolo gelato
One of the race packets included complimentary treats from various local merchants. I skipped the more logical choices of hot chocolate / antipasti / glühwein / wings, and went straight for the gelato. Scroll back up to see the empty container from my last 'naughty point' of 2008!
