Weather is making me grumpy

I was suppose to be running the Winter Carnival Half Marathon this weekend but since it is only going to be a high of 7 degrees for the day I decided that it probably wouldn't be the smartest idea. The last two days here in Minneapolis has been great weather but yet again we are settling in for a cold spell for the next week. I am starting to think we need to get a winter home or know someone who has one!
Owen hasn't been in the best spirits either. The poor little guy has a terrible cold and is absolutely miserable and is kind of making me miserable and grumpy too!
On the brighter side - my training is going well and I feel like I am swimming faster, yet I do have some technique I need to work on. Coach Dan is great though and I love the workouts he gives me - it really helps to have things changed up so I don't get in a rut. I wish I could have him at every swim session to tell me what I need to work on!

Come on down to Iowa - it is warmer here - ha! You are welcome to join us in Florida in February!Sounds like your coach is making your workouts interesting and fun. You go, girl!

Hi Kortney! I didn't know you had a blog - how fun!

So sad for little Owen and his cold (and for you too!). I hope he beats it soon and you don't catch it!

I look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday night!

Hey Kortney!

Are you swimming with Dan from SCS Multisport? You don't swim over the noon hour do you?

Hey Rich
I do swim with Dan. I go Wed morning. That is the day I can get there with Owen and work. I wish I could go more. Do you go there to swim too?

I have gone there over lunch before and so has one of my coworkers, but I don't go there normally. It's right next to Starkey where I work. If I miss my normal Tuesday swim workout I'll try to make it there some morning and race you! It's the only event I would have a chance :-)
