A chance to bare your soles (see what I did there?) and chat about all things running (and otherwise) over coffee with friends. So what if we're not all seated together, around the same table in the same coffee bar, we still got each other's company. We all have our beverages of choice, and we all probably have plenty to say.
So, what's been on my mind mind recently? Glad you asked....
First of all, there's this thing with the weather. I realize I probably whine about Momma N relentlessly, but she is forever getting her seasons mixed up. I was quite content with most of her summer antics (because I LOVE all things summer), but she's really been a piece of work during this season we call "Autumn." September, at least in Iowa, was cooler than usual. Not autumn-like cool, but early winter-like cold. October was darn near frigid (umm...can you say snow?). We had maybe 10 pleasant days of true autumn-in-Iowa weather in the early part of November (and I gotta runfess that they were wonderful)...but now we're experiencing what feels like the dead of winter. Fortunately, we've had very little snow (and it all melted within a day), but the temps have pretty much been stuck in the low 30F's range and the wind has been brutal. Is it any wonder why I keep pining for my summer to return? Anyways, moving on...
|Yes, single digit feels-like temps|
|walking with 'Milly|
|chillin' (but not too chilly) in the pre-dawn hours...|
|Yes, I DO run for FUN (just not on the 'mill)!|
Your turn, anything on your mind that you'd like to share? Weather woes? Running outside or inside this time of year? Any fitness goals for the month that were met?
