Overdressed

I am in full on winter running mode - which means I never check the temperature, I just throw on my two layers of pants and three layers of tops and head out the door. Imagine my surprise when, at dark o'thirty this morning, I left the house to a balmy 20 degrees. It has been so cold this month that that 20 degrees felt like 60. Which made for one HOT three mile run. Of course, I was working extra hard to run through five inches of fresh snow, so that heated me right on up too.

If this "warm" weather could stick around, I may actually be able to handle winter without rocking back and forth on the floor crying like a crazy person.

I can't imagine ever thinking 20 degrees is "warm," but I'm glad you got in a nice run!

I think I'll be even happier once all the snow is gone.

Bwahahaha! I would TOTALLY be that crazy person on the floor rocking back in forth if I lived where you did! I ran on the TM today because it was windy and 44 out - yes, I own up to the fact that I'm a pansy thank.you.very.much.
Have a good week!

Hi Heather,
Yes, I agree, this warmer weather can hang around a little longer:)

Merry Christmas to you and your family!

I know! How quickly 20 becomes balmy out here in the Midwest tundra!
Happy holidays!

It was SO WARM last night. Made for a very happy Jeri to not have to be a wuss and go to the gym. I was sweating up a storm in tights and a jacket, so I'm sure you were dying! :p
