Baby It's Cold Inside

Living in SoCal we are blessed with near perfect weather year round. I know that and willingly pay the price to live here. BUT, it sure gets cold inside our houses. Turning on the heat is a last resort so most days it rarely gets over 60 degrees inside. It is in the mid 50's most mornings, not cold by most standards but it does feel like camping lots of the time.

Luckily for me, this year I can bundle up in a quilt of memories. My super talented mom made me a quilt out of old race t-shirts that I had in a pile never being worn. They are much more useful to me now than they were in the bottom of my closet. It's fun to look at the various ones and be warmed by the fond memories each race holds. I can see the challenges that I took on and remember that my workouts are like a quilt, each a piece in the big puzzle I am trying to build. Thanks mom, because of you the chill is gone:)


  1. at least you have heat! I don't have heat in my house in Hawaii and there's really no way to seal the house anyway. It's been cold here lately.

  2. As I sit here with my heated mattress pad I can't wait till my mom finishes my race blanket too!
