Oh, today's weather put even yesterday's to shame. I headed out earlier in anticipation of afternoon rain that never came. I got in 9 glorious miles (+1 walking back to the car) in the warm January sun and even got a little too warm. I couldn't have dreamed of more perfect weather for my first long run of the year!
I also discovered one more reason why I needed an SUV: to lay out all my stuff and regroup after a run.
Another Fact: I bought this North Face running skirt at REI for $11 a few weeks ago. I'm in love with it: super light fabric, great fit, and a zipper pocket.
With my re-entry into outdoor running though, I've made an interesting observation. I'll have more to say about it late, but for now...
When running/walking on the shoulder of the road, do you run with traffic or against traffic? Assume no sidewalks, though it is an "extra wide" shoulder intended as a walking/running path.
