Today is February 27th, which means it’s ALMOST March, which means it’s ALMOST spring (also known as mud season here in Vermont). We got a little glimmer of spring this past weekend. The weather actually got into the 40’s (Fahrenheit)! Yay! However, that also makes the fact that there is only a high of 18 today seem pretty cruel. Plus, the warm weather made some of the snow melt, but then froze again. This left most of the bike paths that I normally run on covered in ice. I am officially fed up with winter.
I miss being able to run in shorts, I miss having the roads/paths cleared of snow and ice, I miss having plenty of hours of the sun. I even miss my silly tan lines that I get from running outside! I’m beginning to feel a little like this newsperson. “I so pale!”
Anyways, I’m hoping that it won’t be too much longer until things warm up and stay warmed up. I love springtime and can’t wait until that first day of being able to run in my shorts.
Have you had your first shorts run yet? Are you looking forward to spring?
