- The warm February weather (pdf to link) is appreciated, but so, so odd. We haven’t had snow, either! Check out this article from Wednesday – “It’s been 60 days since Chicago has had an inch of snow” (pdf here). It doesn’t feel like winter at all. I usually struggle with the winter to spring transition (I have a hard time with spring) but maybe it will be easier, since we have spring weather now?
- This was a quiet workout week. Lack of sleep from last weekend, and stress of dealing with Khali’s surgery exhausted me. I was lazy at the beginning of the week and then I had to cram all my cross training in to one day before I left for Kansas City. Oops!
- I had such a pleasant long run with my dad on Saturday in Kansas. The weather and company were great! And I felt great! Although my stomach was messed up for a few hours after the run – I forgot how the sun does that to me.
- I had a great run with my brother-in-law on Sunday, too! It was nice to catch up! We ran on a part of the trail by my snister’s house that I hadn’t been on yet. Naturally, since we’re near Kansas City, we found a massive hill!
