That's what I'm talking about.

It had to happen at some point but it took longer than usual this year and I was getting spoiled! I'm talking about the weather, of course. For the first time this season, I had to break out my long pants to run tonight. It's in the 40s. And it started sprinkling on me during my last lap.

NONETHELESS, the run was a success. And whew! Because the last time I ran on that track was last Wednesday, when everything was horrible and I thought perhaps I'd lost my ability to run altogether. There's a certain psychological difficulty in going back to a place where you had a really dismal run, you know, but it worked out greatly because I was kind of awesome this evening (even with the stupidly cold wind and stupidly cold rain drops!).

4.5 miles in 48:57.

By the by, the subject line is in reference to the run itself, and not the weather. Otherwise that just wouldn't make a lot of sense.


  1. Dude the weather has been very mild over here! Also lots of rain in some parts!

  2. What is with all the rain?? Strange times... But this time last year, I was running in temperatures in the 20s. This year the worst I've had to deal with is mid- to upper-40s. I'm definitely not complaining about the temperature!
