Chapte 2 page 193 - TR 73 freezing walk & friends

Today "C" was flying back from NYC where she delivered her middle daughter "A" safe and sound so that she can begin all the adventures that go with your first job after college. Good luck "A" - I'll be thinking of you and wishing you the best!

So "L" and I did something we haven't done in such a long time - we trained together . . . sort of. We took a 3.5 mile walk in the BITTER cold. Bitter I say! The windchill made it 24 degrees. "L" is an olympic pace walker (okay, maybe not quite that fast, but she is crazy fast!!!). By the time we were walking back from the park we were facing into the wind and the sleet and snow. SNOW!!! It was beautiful. It only lasted about 10 minutes. BRRRRRR!

Today's walk was primarily about letting "L" chat. Her aunt died today after having a massive stroke this past Saturday. Her other aunt who was diagnosed with cancer and has been in the hospital for about a month took a turn for the worse yesterday. It's a lot on her plate in addition to life's normal drama. Please keep her in mind as she works through the many decisions, struggles, and emotions that are certainly going to be coming her way this week.

Additionally "Allen L" from my 3 Elles blog is having surgery tomorrow. Wishing her lots of luck for a speedy recovery!

  1. I admire you girls for braving the bitter cold and wind yesterday. Compared to today, yesterday was probably a much better day to be outside. My thoughts and prayers go out to "L" as she works through this difficult time. I'm glad that you were able to be there for her and just let her talk. What a great friend you are! And best wishes to the Allen "L" as she recovers from her surgery.
