LMAO!

Whether you think you can or you can't, you are probably right!

It was funny watching the mallards flying low and then landing on the ice....they slide across it like a jet plane landing on a runway! Cutest thing ever!

That's great! And, how nice to get out and enjoy nature..... I love photographing animals, but I don't get to see them play on ice here in southern Texas!

I went to a different place this morning to try and run with a friend of mine, but it ended up being a huge obstacle course of ice and huge puddles of melting snow! We were able to get in a couple mile walk and take some pictures of gorgeous mallard ducks playing on the half frozen pond :)

After I brought her back home, I came back to my city and went to the community college and was able to do a 2-mile run around the campus and that neighborhood until "nature" caught up with me....and I had to hurry home! hehehehe But its all good. I might not have ended my 2010 in exactly the way I wanted to, but so far, its a good start to a brand new year!

I agree with Gladgad. You won as soon as you started the run! Way to go!

No, failing would have been totally blowing the run off. You did the best you could with what you had at the time. That's called life! Congrats and Happy New Year.

Ok...that was an epic fail. My usual run route at the beach was covered in snow! So I had to run the road along the water. The wind was a killer! I was already wheezing with my asthma from an attack 2 days ago (and still having pain in my chest from it), so the wind just took my breath away! My inhaler did no good in that. After 3 miles of hell and not being able to get in any deep breaths, I threw in the towel. Oh well, there's always next year! LOL

I'm ending the year with the Silvester 5K (a German New Year) here by Pittsburgh. It's been FREEZING here. I had all my cold gear ready.

But wouldn't you know it! It's going to be almost 50 degrees at race time!

We have 20 inches of snow and a high today of 20 degrees here in the mountains of sunny? Arizona. I'm hoping to drive to somewhere tomorrow to find real estate to do my long run. Texas sounds awesome right now!

I hope you find a place to run! I hate to say it (not really), but the temp was 67 when I ran this morning. Gotta love Texas!

Gladgad, I am sooooo jealous! It will be a very warm 37 degrees when I start my run...LOL It will be almost 40 by the time I finish, and and compared to the 20's and low 30's we've had lately, it will be like a little heat-wave here! Well, I'm off to attempt the impossible! LOL Praying for no ice on the roads!

Kenpo - if you can't do it, I'll do it for you. I have 10 today, too! No snow here - in fact, highs are in the mid to upper 70s! And, yes, I'm bragging.

Sorry about your blizzard, but where there's a will there's a way - hopefully you'll find that way near the ocean! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I have planned a 10-mile run to end the year. BUT....we had a blizzard here Monday into Tuesday, so not so sure about this. I am heading out to the beach...along the ocean, in hopes that they had much less snowfall than where I live in a city 20 minutes away from there. If they are covered with snow, I'm not sure how I will pull this off....I really wanted to do this today, on the last day of 2010. I wanted this accomplishment to be my final one of the year :)
