Ha, ha, Mother Nature...really funny.... + a Ryder's Drill Sunglasses Review.

I think Mother Nature was trying to be funny today by pulling a LAME April Fool's day joke. I woke up this morning to at least 6" of snow covering the ground & sidewalks. Ha, ha...funny. I woke up and thought, "You've got to be kidding me. I missed my last 2 runs cause Reno was ghetto and now Mother Nature's trying to pull a April Fool's joke on me." So, I held off my 5 mile run until about 3:00 when Mother Nature figured out her joke was lame and the snow was pretty much melted.
See, MUCH better!

I was even able to try out my new cool Ryder's Drill Sunglasses!
They were AWESOME! I love how I didn't feel like they were there. They were light and stayed in place. There was no bouncing around or feeling like the sides were squeezing my head. It was nice having a pair to wear. This is coming from someone who was a lifeguard forever and hated wearing sunglasses in the bright Georgia sun cause I thought that I looked like a dork. If only I had these back then I would have worn them everyday.

The run was good. I ended up going around the outside of our neighborhood and I LOVE this one spot. There is such an awesome view of the valley. You can't really tell in this picture, but it's really beautiful, snow and all. :) The temps were great I ended up wishing I would have left my jacket at home, but it's all good.

Since I missed yesterday's run I'm thinking I might do an easy 2-3 tomorrow. I gotta start April off on a good note, right?  :)

Tomorrow's our big pasta party! It's fun being 1/4 Italian (even though I don't look it). We eat some GOOD food! My mom and pop are in town and we gotta fuel up before out 10 mile race through the canyons on Saturday. Exciting!

Such a pretty sight, snow and all. I am glad you got a run in. You also look good in those Ryders.

Enjoy your pasta party and your family and your 10 mile race through the canyons.

I heard Utah had snow yesterday! I miss those spring snows! :) I remember having snow in June one time when we lived in Salt Lake! At least you know it will all be gone once the sun comes out! I guess you needed those sunglasses with all that snow and sun!

Enjoy your 10 mile race!
