Socks! Socks!

Last night I arrived home to a package on the table. It was my socks that I won from ajh's giveaway at agegroupsrock Thanks AJ!
Here I am relaxing by the fire in my new socks.
It's been incredibly cold here the past few days with temperatures dipping down to -34C Br-r-r!
I'm on a little running hiatus this week. One thing I've done though is to post an ad on our village website in the hopes of organizing a little running club here in the boonies. I've had a few e-mails back. No sense running alone if you don't have to. I'm not sure how to go about organizing it though. I want to include all levels of runners. Maybe I should just see what people's interests are and see if we can co-ordinate run times for different levels. I just want to keep it simple. Maybe just everyone can meet on certain days/times and then break into groups from there based on distance or training program.  I'm lucky if I'll have 10 people to start, so any ideas of how to get the ball rolling in the simplest way  - let me know. I'm also going to post an ad on the grocery (yes, we only have one grocery store in the village) store bulletin board and see what that drums up.

Happy Running!


  1. Any local running/sporting goods stores? Always good to include them.

  2. Good idea about the running group. I usually run alone since I never know when I'll find the time. But running with others is more fun & motivating.

  3. completely.

    The fireplace looks yummy.
    I had my AC on in my car yesterday.

  4. Love the socks! Love the toasty-looking fire!

    Best of luck getting a group going... sounds like it could be lots of fun!

  5. The socks and fire look so cozy!

    As to the run...our club has several routes, all starting from the same place/time each Saturday. Folks kind of group together as we head out based on pace/distance, etc. So not everyone is together the whole time, but it works. And there's always bagels/coffee afterwards.

  6. Love the socks on you!
    Aren't you the organizer? Good for you I bet you will love having a group to run with!

  7. Great idea about the running group! Them there socks look cozy!

  8. Darn it, I really wanted to win those socks. They have just right amount of pink in them.
