1st snow day of the year and 2015 miles in 2015

We got our first snow of the year today in Maryland! I ended up staying home from work because I was snowed in, and after watching the traffic reports I am SO glad that I am not out on the roads! Yikes! I’ve been enjoying my unplanned day off…I got in a good work-out this morning and am staying warm snuggled up on the couch with my fuzzy leopard and hot pink slippers, leggings, and a delicious cup of French vanilla coffee! 🙂

Snow days can be fun, as long as we don’t have as many as we did last year! I felt like I spent half the winter at home between work and school closures! I took advantage of the extra free time by registering for a 2015 challenge/virtual race, “2015 Miles in 2015“! Since I know I’m not going to be able to run that many miles solo I signed up as a team with Danny and Ilana and invited a few other friends to join in on the fun! My team name is Mojo JoJo, a tribute to one of my favorite childhood cartoons, “The Powder Puff Girls”, and because 2015 is all about getting my Mojo back! (Not to mention, I think saying “Mojo Jojo” is funny!)

Mojo JoJo!!!

It really doesn’t take much to amuse me! 😉 Is anyone else doing this challenge or another fitness related challenge this year? How does participating in challenges help motivate you?
