"Running is a four weather sport."

|A long way down, indeed.|
YOU KNOW IT'S COLD OUT WHEN...
(but, not too cold)
~ You're convinced you're running 8 min miles. You're watch says 10. You assume it's broken.
~ When the sun finally comes out you find yourself crying tears of joy.
~ There are no other signs of life outside. No birds. No squirrels. Nada.
~ You see mirages of coffee on the street and you try to touch them.
~ You see a driver mouth the words OMG as she passes you. (I smiled and waved)
~ You have brief moment, mid run, when you don't know where you are or what you're doing.
~ The wind blows and you hear yourself screaming obscenities that you didn't know you knew in a volume that you didn't know you were capable of.
~ You can't feel any of your nagging injuries because your legs are numb. Bonus.
~ When you get home your biceps are sore because you've been squeezing your core for the past 45 minutes.
~ Later in the day, when you go back outside for your non-running activities, your first thought is, how the hell did I run in this? And then you smile, because you did.
