Muddy Run

Went running today with my doggies. Now, I know that some of you out there in the warmer climates will think this is crazy. For instance, I know from the Zen podcast that the temperature in Austin for the 1/2 marathon was about 30º but that seemed warm to us here in the Midwest today. The sun was shining and the snow was melting and it was a slushy, muddy mess. There is still at least 6-12 inches of snow in most places but the sidewalks and streets were like streams with water running every which way. I was so happy that the wind chill was above freezing (33º) that I wore shorts, no hat and no gloves and felt fine! The dogs kicked up all sorts of water and mud on me but it was so wonderful to not have to wear 40 layers, that I didn't care. Anyway, we had a great run, faster than we've been running recently and although I am sure we will have more snow through March this was a nice taste of Spring.
