Thursday Thoughts: Happy New Year

Happy New Year!  We came back home to KC on Sunday after a whirlwind couple of weeks in Hays for Grandpa’s funeral and Christmas.

Jasper seemed happy to come back home and see all his normal things.  He spent a while staring out the window and watching the birds in the tree.

James and I bought Jasper a water fountain drinking bowl – he always likes to sit in the shower when I trickle the water on and drink from the faucet, so we thought it would be a good idea to try out this bowl.  He wasn’t too sure of it at first, and after he played in it and got the floor all wet, he decided it was okay to drink from.

I had my last run of 2014 on Tuesday (December 30), which was actually the first run I’d had in 10 days! I did 5 miles on the treadmill because the wind chill was crazy low, and parts of it hurt, but I got through, and finished 2014 with 845 total miles.  I’ve already written about my 2015 goals, I’m excited to hit the ground running this year!

James and I had a low key New Years Eve, which was perfect after the crazy last few weeks.  We ate at Barley’s Brewhaus, then came home and ran in the new year from our comfortable and cozy couch.

This morning, a friend and I ran in the KC Track Club New Years Day Fun Run, which was cold, but fun.  We got 4 miles in the books, then had some hot chocolate to warm up.  About 150 people ran this morning, it was a great way to start the new year! I even won a pair of shoes from Garry Gribbles in the raffle!

This afternoon, James and I are going to a movie and will relax the rest of the day.  Did you party hard to ring in the new year? Share your 2015 goals below!

  1. On Monday nights I would often run to Barley’s Brewhaus (at 119th and Quivira) on the Indian Creek Trail from my house. I could make a 5 mile run out of it. And since I was there — and dehydrated — I would always have a couple of beers. Then my wife would come and we’d drive home.
