6.4 miles. 2010 top-off run. short sunnyside up loop. dark, cold, icy, snowy.
i've been told that bad luck comes in bunches. someone broke into my car last night. luckily, i recently removed all valuables from my car after hearing bonnie's story, as well as hearing that my neighbor's house had been robbed. i still had some stuff stolen, but none of it was important. it actually may qualify as the poorest robbery ever.
thankfully, they left me with my really nice subZero sleeping bag and my snowboarding boots (i have since removed them from my car; don't try and rob me). curisouly, they stole all of my CDs (which were burned mixes of random songs), two 5-pound dumbbells, and my large moose trophy from the TOU marathon this year (i hadn't found a place for it yet, so i have been toting it around in my car since september).
i find it extremely funny picturing someone running off into the night carrying two dumbbells and a giant moose trophy (sharp sticks included). they also took a few other random things -- water bottle, textbooks, first aid kit -- but nothing too valuable that can't be replaced. i am just perplexed at the things they saw as valuable vs. not, but i thank them for finally helping me decide what to do with the moose.
happy new year, everyone.
*for anyone who is interested: rob rohde has planned a new year's day group run for tomorrow. we are meeting at 8am at the park & ride lot just east of the maverick off the highland/alpine exit (#284). it will be brutally cold and lots of fun.
