Watching Winter Fly
This morning when I woke up it was 50 degrees. By the time I took Iris out for her walk it was 54 degrees and when I came home with her, it was 51.
Lucky girl, she got a taste of her favorite delicacy for the first time this year, fresh seasonal goose poop. It's goose poop season again. They're back...
Then I went out for my own run, and when I left home the wind was just starting to pick up. I took a fleece jacket with me, good idea. By the time I circled Warren Lake and headed home, it was 38 degrees and dropping.
One I got inside the house, it started snowing, and I watched winter move in over a period of an hour and a half. Typical Colorado weather.
Tomorrow the running club group meets at the high school track and I am going, even if I have to wear six layers. I will not let cold weather defeat me.
Sort of looking forward to the coming week's temperatures in the single digits, that means the mud will freeze. Better footing at the lake.
What else is good about winter? Getting to wear some of my favorite articles of clothing, all piled on top of one another in layers.
No more yard work, except for occasional snow shoveling, and keeping up with the dog poop in between storms.
Night running. More of it. Night running is even better in the winter. I better enjoy it, because there are only 52 days until spring...
