Good News and Bad News....

It was nice enough to get out and run this evening, and it felt great. I went for a 5.5 miler at about a 9 1/2 min pace.....It started drizzling about 2 1/2 miles in and I had to wipe my glasses about every 5 minutes because I couldn't see...(oh the joys of being a glasses-wearing runner)....it was a nice run...

Now for the good and bad news...

The good --I won some running shoes! Yes, through the onlineshoes.tv giveaway I was a random winner! Woo-hoo. I should be getting some Asics in the next couple weeks, so look for a review on my blog after I try them out...

The bad -- I learned this afternoon that my grandmother passed away, so it looks like we'll be leaving Christmas day or the day after for a trip to Illinois for the funeral....while her loss is saddening, and she will be missed, I am glad that her suffering is over....
