Don't believe everything that you breathe

The Annual January Heat Wave! The wife has been in Vermont since last Thursday. I have a succession of babysitters and parents (mine) looking after the kids while I am at work, so getting away for a run has not been possible. But after yesterday's temperatures were so balmy, I virtually despaired not getting out in it. Luckily S. was willing to stay late tonight so I took a mad dash through the twilight downpour. Luscious!

Stats:
Distance: 3.25 miles
Weight: 173 lbs.
Stretches: somewhat

WHAT? A rainy night?! I LOVE a rainy night!

I could go on.
