Last night I hit the trail for 10 minutes. In shorts-and it was raining outside. Raining on December 12. That's crazy for Minnesota. All this week the temperatures are supposed to be in the 40's with a shot at 50 on the weekend.
We built our home 15 years ago and only one other time have we had a brown Christmas while living here, but it was -15F. I don't recall it being this warm in December, ever. Crazy, but I'll take it.
I broke off one of the crampons on my snowhoe during the marathon last winter. For only $5 Northern Lights repaired it for me. I don't care if it sits in the garage, unused for a few more weeks!
Tonight instead of run club I'm playing Bonkos. I'll be hitting the trail earlier in the afternoon with Topaz. I'll be wearing shorts. Again.
