      "i thought about how i was still running, whether it was -40C or snowy, or windy, or icy, or whatever, it didn't matter. then i thought about how the pace didn't feel all that hard, even with the snow." <-- this is why you're awesome and why summer will be more awesome for you than it will be for everyone who stayed inside.

      @patty- i don't think there's a set amount. *shrug* just that we have a layer of fat before the tissue. i think it's is related to the fact that a)my boobs aren't very large and b) i've lost more weight, so that layer of fat is smaller than it used to be...? i dunno. either way. as long as they're healthy that's all i care about! :) @marina - what's that seinfeld episode, with the boobs? They're real and they're spectacular. ;) @barbara- coach calls it slacker day because i don't run...! ;)

      Well, a) I did think it was you, thanks for clarifying, and b) did they not teach you in Mom School that mind-reading is the most important skill to have? Or did you miss that class?

      A wise decision. Hopefully the weather gods will take note that Spring has officially arrived and do away with this -24C nonsense.
