It was gorgeous here today. Sunny, breezy, high close to 60. I had missed my chance at a run yesterday as for some reason Ernesto and I got it into our heads it would be a good day to stack firewood, clean out the garage and move some furniture around. Ya know, just a kickin’ back kind of fun Saturday. Something about this weather makes you do crazy stuff like that. The change in temps makes you view your surrounding a little differently, I guess.
But today I was determined to get out, if only for a quick run. I didn’t have much time since I was driving Ernesto to the airport later this afternoon as he was heading off for a business related trip. I did a quick 3 mile loop that I’ve done a hundred times, but it’s been a while since I’ve run it in temps over 30 degrees. The snow melt made for some crazy puddles, so it was kind of like a city adventure run of sorts. The new Saucony pro-grid’s I picked up a few weeks back at an expo are a little less “new” now, but that’s okay. I always feel a little self-conscious in clean running shoes and these are mostly white too. Well, they were, I mean.
So now I am hunkering down after a long day of fresh air (the kids of course did not care mom just came back from a run- they wanted to bike around the block a few times so off we went) and getting some home business stuff attended to. My face has that warm taut feeling you get from being out in the sun and air all day.
I’ll enjoy it while it lasts, because I hear it will be 30 and snowy tomorrow.
