Ten and Ten

Ten miles. Ten degrees. What does such a combination of parameters require?

Lots and lots and lots of layers.

The best part about this run was seeing a flock of bluebirds. Their bright feathers stood in stark contrast to the bare branches and snow-encrusted fields.

I have finally eased back into the routine of rising and running in the dark, cold mornings before work. Boston is 15 weeks from tomorrow. I'll be ready.

10 degrees? Brr... You have me beat by a few for this year. I think the coldest I got back in Colorado was 13.

You're a better woman than me.

And I totally thought about you and your last post this Saturday morning past as I was trying to squeeze a long run into a 10-degree morning (something we, like, never ever get here in sunny South Carolina).
