Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was fairly quiet. Friday afternoon I went for a run. Just 3 easy miles. runningI’m trying to limit my running to just once per week and only a few easy miles while I try and get to the bottom of this hamstring/groin situation.running-in-rain

Spent some quality time with Mr. SOTSS and his girls…my nicknames for them are “K-Corn” and “J-Beans”. Oh and Saturday was apparently Squirrel Appreciation Day according to Facebook. Duncan celebrated.

Today it’s super windy (gusts expected to go as high as 60mph) and the rain is picking up as well so I tried to get the bulk of my 10,000 steps in earlier by walking briskly around the neighborhood for an hour. Most of it alone and about 20 minutes with the doodle.walkingwindyI’m already at 9,000 and I can easily get those remaining steps banged out just from doing my laundry. Bedroom on 3rd floor + laundry room on 1st floor = LOTS OF STAIRS! 🙂 Plus I can always hop on my trampoline if Duncan is willing to share…trampoline

Oh, and I registered for the Cold Feat 10k, another local trail race. I’ve run it a few times before and I’m looking forward to it again this year.

I might have to serve jury duty the rest of this week. I have to call in later to find out.

Have you ever served jury duty??

Do you like trampolines? 

How was your weekend?


  1. I live my fit bit too! There’s something about it that makes me want to get more steps in!! Did you wear nails in the trainers or anything running in the snow? P.s. Never done jury duty but makes me think of that film with Halle Berry.. The name escapes me????????????????????

    • I didn’t have any nails in my sneakers. The snow was so deep at times I just walked. And since it was fresh snow it wasn’t too slippery. But my pace was averaging more like a brisk walk 🙂

  2. I’ve gotten letters to come for jury sellection twice in the past seven years. I’ve gotten out of it both times.

  3. I have had jury twice in the twenty years I’ve lived in metro Atlanta. For one, I was the foreman. As a kindergarten teacher (at the time), it was not the most fun-writing sub plans in case you would be called each day!

  4. I’ve been called for jury duty once and while it was an interesting experience. I am happy I was not picked!
