Love the Weather

People this time of year complain about the weather a lot. 52 or so when I went out the door this afternoon. Cloudy. Rained all week and looked like it wanted to today. Kinda breezy. If the weather was like it was today everyday, I'd be OK with it.

I also really enjoyed my run. 2 hours at ASC Greenway trails. Back pain wasn't too bad. Loved scooting along the roots, rocks & leaves. It was one of those dreary days where I felt like skipping the run but once I got out there it was one of the highlights of my week. Someone remind me those runs are always the best.

Low tonight is supposed to be 33. Wish I were in the mountains this past weekend. An early morning 33 degree would be nice, but I know I'm not getting up at 5 AM.

Agreed. Once you get going and warmed up, there's nothing better than a run in the woods.

Rainy & Gloomy almost always = my best running days. I prefer 20-30 degrees & dry. Looking forward to those winter mornings with the sun rising.

I'm gonna get up in November and run this one when time permits. Do one direction - then flip & do the other direction. I noticed that you enjoyed running the Mountain bridge Wilderness ealier in the year. Take a look, you may enjoy this route sometime. The leaves on the rocks will make it tricky:
