Since last week’s proclamation to run a half marathon at the Gasparilla Distance Classic, I’ve only fit in one run. Not a good way to kick off my half marathon training!
Saturday morning I woke up with such gusto and I simply had to keep that motivation going. But like every morning before a run, I checked the weather forecast and heavy fog was to be expected. A quick peek out the window confirmed that a thick fog blanketed my neighborhood.
Truthfully, I am a fair weather runner, but fog is fine except that it messes with my asthma and it freaks me out a bit because the boogieman and scary storm drain clowns lurk behind every corner. But during the holidays, fog is even freakier thanks to the creepy Christmas decorations.
At the start of my run, a mob of giant gingerbread people tried to grab me.
Then, a life-size scary snowman tried to beat me with his broom.
Thankfully, I managed to escape the clutches of all these creepy Christmas lawn decorations in the fog and finish a 3 mile at a decent time.

And for my minute half marathon training effort, I rewarded myself with a marathon of cookie baking the rest of the day.

Good job on your run. Haven’t run in fog for quite a while, but I do enjoy running in snow! ; ) Good luck on your half and all the training for it!
Great job on the run! Good luck with your half training.
I am on week 5 of half training myself.. my first half. However, I still haven’t registered for a half race. LOL
OMG, I love the Gingerbread people. 3.1 miles – not bad and certainly deserves a nice hot batch of cookies; just not gingerbread cookies because you know THEY are watching.
Those decorations can be scary. good job for getting out there and running.
Hey! Just wanted to say site. Continue with the good work!
Hi! Just wanted to say great blog. Continue with the good work!
I never read this post. Why do the gingerbread people have vampire teeth?!
Because they’re scary, blood-sucking gingerbread men who were coming after me! lol
