Hail Mary!

Finally got out for a run, the sky was clouding up around 11 am and I thought I could sneak out for an hour before it would rain.

Wrong! I got out and 10 minutes into my run it started raining. I came home and got rid of my sunglasses and put a hat on, and went back out. The rain had stopped. I went back along the same route and another mile into it, almost at the same place, it started dumping rain! I turned around and started heading home, thinking 45 minutes would be enough. I got home in the downpour, and within minutes it was hailing.

That's okay, I wasn't feeling great on the run, given my lack of activity recently, my legs felt like wood blocks. I know they'll feel better after a few more days, but that first run is always tough.

Typical Fort Collins spring weather. I thought we were done with the white stuff, but I forgot about hail.

You never know, by 3 pm it could be 70 degrees and sunny.

Isn't this weather nuts? It is nice to get the moisture, though - maybe our state won't burn down this year!!! You guys have gotten WAY more snow than us the past few weeks - we got just a few inches each of the storms. I am also noticing that you have more green and buds than us..... Hope you get an opportunity to get out tomorrow and that you have a renewed spring to your step!

I'm glad we're getting the moisture but I am tired of the white stuff! Can't it just rain?

It's greening up here, but about a month behind last year! The lilacs bloomed by mid April last year, still no lilacs, and no leaves on the trees yet!

Got a good run in tonight.
