Low 70's and sunny here in suburban Phoenix. Gotta love it.

She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

I ran for an hour in very windy weather...I think windchill was ~10, actual air temps ~25. I was pretty comfy, though. It was a pretty invigorating run. The only downside was being out after dusk with a VERY bright LED blinky device and STILL having cars refuse to give me any room on unplowed shoulders. 6 of 7 cars wouldn't budge even half a lane over when no other cars were coming. I'd love some sort of device that could immobilize engines--that'd learn 'em!
