There is something people tell you when you move to Colorado. But, I always deliberately forget to believe it or maybe I just don't want to.
The two snowiest months are March and April. That makes no sense. Doesn't Mother F&cking Nature realize that March and April are spring months? If you want to have snowy months, fine. But have them when it is supposed to snow, like in December and January.
So, when I was sitting around looking at the weather forecast on Tuesday and saw this, I just shook my head and screamed WTF??
Although meteorologists are notoriously wrong, they weren't this time. Yesterday looked like this.
And 15" later, the skies cleared and it looked like this.
And we spent the day doing this.
1,000 piece puzzles really suck. But in a weird way they are addictive. Kind of like reading Sky Mall on the airplane.
So...my outside run for today was not occurring for obvious reasons.
If you read this blog you know I really don't care for
I can get easily distracted by counting how many strokes it takes swimmers to go from one end to the other (Hey guy in little itty bitty Speedo - 17 strokes is impressive and you have a very long, lithe, muscular body that glides. Not that I was looking that hard).
I will say that I felt kind of badly for the three women very close behind me doing yoga or TRX or something because the farts were flying and I had no control. I don't know if they were loud or not because I had my ear buds in. Oh well. That's just a side affect of running. Kind of like snot rockets and chafed nipples.
All of this to say...bring on the warm weather so I don't have to crop dust women doing yoga.
What's the weather like where you are?
What do you eat before a run? If it's a long run, I'll do a banana or toast or something. Shorter runs, usually not much.
