Home! From Sunny warm flat land to 25º WC,  heavy snow flurries in a 25 mph wind with hills. Loving it. Reading Born to Run and had a great vacation. Tom is a great guy to run with and will even narrate the surroundings like Morgan Freeman. 

The vacation did me good as I had a decent run and just went out to have fun. Depsite the non favorable conditions I had about 4 MP miles including a 7:12 into the wind without it seeming like I was pushing it. That made me smile.
