Ever experience one of those days where it is a mix of bright sun and gray clouds, the wind is blowing 20-30 MPH, and even when the sun is shining brightly, you are getting pelted by raindrops? That pretty much describes today! Weird weather at best. How could a meteorologist not be smiling on a day like today? You could have pretty much called for anything except snow and you would have been at least partially correct! :) Strange day.
Speaking of meteorologists, check out the blog of KARE 11's Sven Sundgaard. My folks are still upset that he left their Duluth NBC station for the Cities. Sven is also a big time runner, and for some reason, he has a pet goat.
Anyhow, I had a very solid run tonight. Despite the odd weather, it was 60 degrees outside, so the temperature was ideal. It was the usual route, once again, and I felt really strong today. A good all-around run.
Worth noting is that the baby Canada geese have hatched! There were some little, fuzzy, yellow puffballs on the shore of the pond when I ran by this afternoon. I know, they are regarded as somewhat of a nuisance bird these days, but the babies are still adorable!
Tonight's dinner is some leftover oven-roasted ring bologna from Schmidts Meat Market (yum). After that, I will be tuning in to "Bones" on FOX, and I absolutely cannot wait for the new episode of "Lost" on ABC. Things are getting pretty wild as we approach the season finale!
