Wierd Weather Sundaily (Read 33 times)


    Good morning! Planning 7 if I can get out today. we had an ice storm with more on the way.


    qotd: What is strange about your weather this weekend?


      Good morning-- Got in just under 4 miles yesterday at the beach.  The kiddos and I went biking while DH was kitesurfing.  It was a glorious day so the qotd is timely....


      qotd:  70s and sunny here.  I'll take it since I need to do some garden work before winter sets in.  Well, 'winter' as it is in the mid-atlantic region.

        Morning! About to head out for about 10. I haven't run double digits in over a month (!!)


        QOTD: It's 70 and humid here. For running,  I'd prefer the cold. Can't really breathe in this weather w/ asthma.

        Hyner 50k:  4/18/15

        Laurel Highlands 70M: 6/13/15


          10 gritty miles this morning.  Saw lots of birds today, they must all be down here because of that crazy weather up north.  Lots of pelicans, cormorants, herons, even heard a woodpecker and an owl this morning.


          qotd: yesterday in the 70's, today in the 50's, tomorrow in the 30's.  Yup, winter in TX, nothin' strange about that.  We did have a few thunderstorms go thru yesterday with about 3 to 4 inches of rain.

          Next up:

          Grindstone 100 mile, Oct 7


            Got out early to try and beat the heavy rain, but about 300 yards from my house, FLASH - BOOM, a thunderstorm popped up.  I turned around and ended up doing 7.5 on the treadmill.  I can deal with rain, but lightning is a different story.


            QOTD: See above.  All the snow melted overnight and it's warm today, but chance of snow on Tuesday.

            Occasional Runner

              I ran down to the gym, 6 miles, then did a core workout. I'm trying to get back in shape and it's going to require more than just running.


              I might go grab some trail miles in a little bit. Depends on what Jo wants to do today.


              QOTD: We're having very typical Utah winter weather.

              running under the BigSky

                Going to try and get in 8-10 miles this morning, got another couple of inches of snow which is helpful as the trails were getting awfully packed and icy


                qotd: my plan yesterday was to get in a 18-20 mile run, it was dead calm when I left, an hour later on top of the ridge the wind was howling at close to 35 mph w/ dark clouds rolling in fast- I exited stage left and ended up w/ ~ 11 miles; of course later in the afternoon the sun came out and the wind died down- as the old saying goes if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes

                 “Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle, or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.”                                                                           


                  Laying low for now as our snowstorm is winding to an end. Not much to crow about as I think it will only be about 7" once it stops. I'm sure we will get the usual arctic air rolling in the next few days as a final kick to the groin. I know, embrace it and smile. 

                  Did get in 14.5 yesterday on icy roads and it went real good, Today I'll do about 5 after I watch a bunch of football.


                  QOTD- Nothing strange, just normal winter weather here.


                  Endless trails

                    14 trail miles this morning, trail conditions were radically different than they were

                    three days ago....


                    QOTD: On Tues I did a trail run in the snow, temps in teens-today all snow was gone

                    an temp were 60's. Weird.


                      No run today. Sunday is brunch day at a local place that is AWESOME. The routine is sleep in. Cup of coffee at home.  Awesome Brunch. Work.


                      QOTD: Lots of rain while snow is still on the ground. Not too weird for around here, but still weird to me.

                      Are we there yet?

                        Finally broke through a mental barrier I had when I approached 13 miles. Ran 15.1 in 63F temps.



                        QOTD: I think the old record high had already been broken when I ran this morning and temps are supposed to reach 72F today.

                        Also noted that's a weird way to spell weird.
