    Temporarily Winter
    This morning when I woke up at 5 a.m., it was approximately 28 degrees outside. I went for a run anyway, properly bundled in 4 layers with a scarf and ear warmer. The wind was whipping around, but insulated by houses and trees, I didn't feel it much. Until I got to the reservoir. Then it felt like ICE was being pelted at my face. It was lightly snowing, but I couldn't see the stuff, b/c it is dark at that time of day. I am almost certain that it made me run faster, and I had little complaints.

    I returned to the house to find that the temperature had actually DROPPED 5 degrees while I was out there.

    And since then? It's dropped another 4!! It looks so cold out there!! It's 19 degrees and the wind is still whipping little biting baby snowflakes around. It's like DUST. There's no accumulation, no nothing - just white dusty coldness.

    By Sunday, however, we're back into the 50's. I was wanting to complain about that, but when I realized that it means I won't be frostbit while running, I decided to be grateful.

    But I would like some real snow. Please?

      I can't believe you ran in that weather Zus! You are officially on my top hard core chicas list.

      As I was (jogging) around the reservoir, I was saying (talking out loud to myself) that you would THINK that I was either a die-hard triathelete or a crusty new englander -- when in reality, I think I'm neither (certainly not the athlete). I'm just trying SO HARD to establish good habits, and once I say, "oh, it's 28 out!" then next time it's, "oh, I see a cloud in the sky!"

      Besides, I learned once in my past that 18 degrees is my limit. I can exercise outdoors as long as it's 18 or above. Then it gets to be too much, and I stay home.

      Ok, Z, you guilted me into running today. We have sunny skies and 65 degrees so I definitely cannot complain. Oh, wait...I think I see a cloud :-)

      Btw, congrats on kicking the MPRE in the ass!
