Another drink and I'm ready for action.


In February, 2007 I began winter running. Three months after I ran my first marathon, and I hadn't run once in December or January. I was deeply unhappy for a variety of reasons and tired of sitting still. I ran eleven times that February, in large part due to the Year Playlists. Something to wrap my head around, something to play with.

Several of those dates included temps below twenty degrees, but I ran the complete 3.25 mile circuit. Now, I cannot deal with the sidewalks clogged with ice. I have been running the streets in my neighborhood, which are largely clear and free of much traffic.

The forecast says that we will rise above thirty degrees, and for several days, beginning Monday.

I can wait. I know how to wait.

Temperature: 18°
Climate: sunny & frigid
Distance: 1.75 miles

My sinuses are telling me you won't have to wait very long.
