26 cold. Snow flurries. Relaxed run. Lots of cars out on this first Monday of the New Year. Off to work, trying not to think of all that needs caught up on.

If I was not awake when I woke up, I certainly was when I stepped outside. 13 Degrees was brisk this morning. I layed up for it, but even with my good cold weather gloves it took a few miles until my fingers were ok. 7.5 miles, 9 striders (30s each). 

Passed people waiting for the bus. Funny they looked at me like I was crazy, but I looked at them like they were crazy. Standing out there in the cold waiting for a bus. Also came behind to girls walking and although I tried to be loud, they did not hear me. The screams made me pick up the pace.

34 with a steady freezing rain. Might get into the 40's for tomorrows run before dropping back down. That will be welcome. Wanted to get some striders in, but caution won out today.

GREAT running temps today. 52. If you have seen my week this was most welcome. I know it will get cold next week, but who cares. I didn't even mind the brisk headwind. Good jump on the day and hope to run some speaker wire behing the walls today for my speakers.
