I can begin to wear my shorts and I feel comfortable enough to wear just a sports bra, feel the wind on my skin!!! I am so happy that this cold weather is over with, no more tights, no more capri's, no more long sleeves, no more gloves or ear muff thingies!!!!! Oh I am so happy!!!!

      I am over the moon about the weather right now!  Tank top and shorts weather today!  Soaked through my gear on my run.  Love it!

      Do you even run?

        I think I should have grabbed my running shoes today, tomorrow it's going to be thundering and storming Sad. I might have to run back home and pick 'em up. I might be sore and stiff today, but an easy run shouldn't hurt.

          It is 36 degrees here today, and we are getting 6 or more inches of snow by the end of Thursday.

            We went from winter straight into summer. Spring was last Sunday. I enjoyed it but hoped it would last more than a day.

              Upper 40's & drizzly here, but that's good enough for shorts & short sleeves, so that'll do. No sports bra for me though.

                70° yesterday, 15° today, with 50mph winds and a bit of snow.  And then back into the 60s on Thursday.  Ahhh...springtime in the Rockies.

                  I never knew Winter had arrived.

                      It's 81 here and I'm loving it!  I sat outside on the park bench during lunch and it just felt good to have the sun hitting my face.  Spring can stay away Big grin.

                        Finally got back to the 60s in the Boston area. Monday the day of the race, is now forecast to hit 70.  Might be a good day to be a volunteer by Wellesley College which is where I will be.

                          Just finished my first warm weather run of the season. That was tough. Sunday morning was upper 30's low 40's and today 81. I am beat. It felt good though.

                            I can relate to that! I decided yesterday afternoon would be a good time to get in 10 miles after a couple of low mileage weeks.  It was 80 here. I was ready to quit at 7 but, since it was an out and back run, I was still 3 miles from my car.

                              It was starting to look like spring - even some bare ground - when we got one winter snow storm and a 2nd one starting. A friend of mine has been training on snowshoes then had his wife pace him (not on snowshoes) while she drove a 4-dog sled dog team. There's been at least one voodoo doll attack on snowmen.

                               

                              I was run/hiking / packing trail in snowshoes at +15F yesterday.

                                Feels like of 30 here today. Snow showers and rain with ice pellets mixed in for good measure.

                                 

                                More of the same tomorrow.

                                 

                                Hopefully it actually feels like spring for my spring marathon in 5 weeks.

                                 

                                It actually got up to 46F here yesterday. That was a nice treat.
