Yesterday's nice weather has officially been topped. 63 degrees here in the metro! Wow, does it ever feel nice. In fact, it is so nice outside that, as I type this, I can see a person down the street in the condo development unloading a keg of beer from his truck wearing just shorts and a tank top. That is a sign of spring, right?
Anyhow, what a great day to run! I took the the usual route in my summer gear; shorts, a short-sleeved running shirt, and my cap. Awesome! I ran somewhat easy today, since I went longer yesterday, but it was a joy to run. It felt like spring, and I loved it.
The snow is virtually gone, with the exception of areas that receive little sun, or where it was piled up by the plows. I have never seen so much snow melt so quickly.
And finally, in running news; With the Human Race 8k in St. Paul rapidly approaching, we just got an e-mail from the race director. Apparently the race is being protested by leprechauns! Ought to be interesting.
Starting to feel a wee bit Irish,
