Greetings from Minnesota. It reached a mild 58 degrees today, and I’m smart enough to know that days this warm will soon be gone until spring.
I couldn’t help thinking, as I jogged along in shorts and a light long-sleeve top, that this could be one of my last outdoor runs in shorts for awhile. In a matter of weeks we could have a thick layer of snow, or it could stay fairly warm until nearly December. The unpredictability and surprises the seasons bring generally make it fun to be a Minnesotan.
Today’s run was good. Just a few easy miles to shake out my legs after a harder effort yesterday at the track. Not to brag 😉 ,but I finally managed a track mile yesterday under 7:30. (7:28). It’s been awhile, if ever, that I’ve run a sub- 7:30 mile. Now I just have to be careful not to slack off and get lazy and slow this winter!
The mild weather has it’s great points, but remember those calf coats I told you about last week? Well, I had to do some checking today and take coats off my older babies so no one got overheated. Soon enough they may need to re-acquire a coat, but we’ll deal with that when it comes.
Hmm, I feel like I haven’t really said much tonight. I also don’t have any cool pictures to share. Guess I’ll say goodnight and let you (and me) get back to keeping tabs on election results!
Share if you like, what temperature for you means it’s officially too cold for shorts?
Is it just me, or were you surprised to find that you had over 10 different judge elections to vote for on your ballot? Maybe it’s just MN, but it seems like every election day this fact surprises me…
