In the last 7 days:
When you come home after running, open up the online WSJ site, and the first thing that grabs your eye is a photo of Gregg Allman, you can guess it probably hasn't been a good day for rock music. And it wasn't. : ( The Allman Brothers were among my all-time favorite bands, iconic, and, growing up in the South as a teenager, all but inescapable (in a good way.) Must be some considerable sadness at the Big House today.
Biked and ran today.
Ignoring the 5 P's, I ended up getting caught in the rain on my bike, not close to home, which was cool (literally) and wet (literally.) Still has to beat being somewhere in the steamy deep South with 90s for temps and 90s for humidity. Ran trails late in the in the day and just got drizzled on now and then, so that goes down as a win. Still plenty of scattered snow up at Happy Jack from last week's storm, and it's not going to melt away until we get a much milder day than anything we've had the past week.
Ran trails from home.
O' at Bisbee Hill, plus a hill workout tagged on at the end.
Fittingly for what I think was the warmest day we've had this year (it was above 70F at any rate), a mosquito came wandering by just after I had finished. The hand was quicker than the mosquito.
The wind fans were on so it never felt the least bit warm, which it would have without the wind.
Ran mucho snowo (snow-o?) todayo, though it wasn't that longo. Still lots of snow in the hills, melting fast, and water was everywhere there wasn't snow. Given what the weather gods have whispered in my ears about tomorrow, by the time another 24 hours have trickled by, nearly all the new snow should be gone, at least all of it that can be touched by sun. And if the sun reached out and touched me, I would be gone, too.
I have a feeling that this big late snow may have been just enough to salvage the mosquito season. So happiness!!!
Better late than never: all this time I never knew why it was called "Smells Like Teen Spirit", but now I do.
The word for today is "scanty". Usage example: signs of spring today are scanty; plenty of symptoms of winter, however.
Was weighing whether to skip running and bike indoors instead, but, much like yesterday, very late in the day the sleet rains moved on off and I ran trails from home. It will be a nice treat to get up in the hills and run on bare ground again, once things brighten up and the snows melt away.
