The snow turned into rain.


The snow has all gone, washed down the sewer by torrential rain. I expected last night that the temperatures would drop, I was entirely not expecting this.

Temperature: 63°
Climate: rain
Distance: 5.15 miles
Weight:174 lbs.

Running three days before Christmas, when there is so much to do, and clean, seems really selfish. But between weather and work, running has not been a priority and blah, blah, blah, depressing, lightning pains, slack muscles, what have you.

It was misting as I headed out, but so cool and refreshing I kept going into a five-miler. It was the last quarter mile that the skies opened up and gave me a taste of what was coming down last night.

The rain on my chest is a baptism. I'm born again.

Yes. We all are. At the closing of the year, we are all born again. Because rain.

I did 4 this morning. Sixty degrees at 7:30 AM. I overdressed, of course, so I was gasping at the end. It couldn't be because I've been out of running for five months, so it MUST be because of the long-sleeved tech tee. I'm looking forward to a Christmas Day run.

We can assume any snow that falls Christmas eve will not stick. Have a safe and happy run on Wednesday!
