I am all for the four seasons - spring, summer, fall and winter. I live in an area where we have those four distinct seasons and usually each one only sticks around for about 3 months.
But this year, Winter will not leave!
It is getting a little ridiculous when there is still snow on the ground and the forecast shows snow all week at the end of March.
Plus I am tired of putting on layer after layer of clothes just to go outside and run. I am ready to pack away my spandex and under armour tops, my winter running jacket and my neck warmer. Bring out the capris and long sleeves, please!
This is me before heading out for my Saturday long run. The sun was shining but the temperature was only 25F. I was not thrilled by the weather.
The long run actually turned out pretty good. I planned a semi-new route that took me on some of my favorite roads and by the end of the run the sun was shining brightly in a clear blue sky. This was my first solo 12+ mile run in a long time and I just enjoyed taking in the sights as I ran.
Even though it was beautiful out, I am over this winter. I am so ready for spring.
