Winter's Back, Back Again

by - Monday, March 28, 2011

What's the deal with winter coming back all of a sudden?

I had been perfectly happy to pack up all my Under Armour and swap out my tights for capris and shorts. Mid-40s to 50s is what I was getting used to on my runs.

Spring was finally here.

And then winter came back with a vengeance this weekend. It was cold and windy on my long run on Saturday, and I grumbled as I dug my Under Armour out from the bottom of my workout clothes bin.

The colder weather gave me an excuse to sleep in on Saturday though, which was kind of nice.

But this morning sleeping in wasn't really an option because of the whole work thing. So I bundled up in my my tights and running jacket. Even with gloves my hands were still freezing since it was in the 20s.

I managed to bang out an easy four miles that felt fairly effortless, and at some point during the run I stopped being freezing cold.

I guess I should enjoy the cooler mornings while I can. I know it'll only be a few more months before I'll be complaining about the nasty heat and humidity of D.C. summer.
