Blizzards in November

27 Nov

Perfect 65 degree weather in the D.C. area today.  I can’t remember a nicer, more seasonable holiday weekend.  I got a late start to the morning, but ended up running almost 5 miles into the Shirlington neighborhood of Arlington….where I met up with this little guy:

Barney, my sister’s adorable little English Labrador puppy. 

After cranking out another 1.5 miles with baby Barney, my sister and I met up with the rest of the family for a rare treat:  Dairy Queen blizzards.   I love that they’ve introduced a new (read: more calorie conscious) “mini” size.   If I read the microscopic nutritional information correctly, my chocolate + Reese’s cup version weighs in at under 200 calories.   Sure, there are tons of healthful snack options out there…but after a nearly 7 mile run, don’t even try to talk me out of ice cream.
