You know you’re a Minnesotan when you wake up and are literally smiling and excited to run because it’s FINALLY going to be 20 degrees and sunny outside! Balmy. Lovely. Exactly what I needed. It’s been a long couple of weeks of below zero temps, icy running conditions and a crazy work schedule – so I’ve been on the treadmill or skipping workouts. Blah. It’s only mid-January though – we are guaranteed to have many more weeks of crappy, icy, cold weather. Those of you that live in moderate year round climates should count your running blessings!
