52 Degrees....

Doesn't make running for the first time in what seems like forever any easier. Since we don't really love running on the treadmill, but we do love our new gym AND it's easier to get up at 5am, drive to the gym and run there than it is to run in freezing temps our plan is to run at the gym and workout during the week and then run outside on Sundays (and sometimes Saturdays), I thought we would start this plan on Monday as I am a true believer in the week starting on Monday and not Sunday.

But then I stumbled into our office with a cup of coffee and checked weather.com and was surprised with a 52 feels like 52 temperatures.

So it was on with the running clothes and out the door to the lake front path. Then we realized that we would both rather run in 20 degree temps, with no wind than 52 degrees and wind that blows through the entire first half of your run. We "got through it" ugly style, but whatever it was nice to be outside and not freezing.

We apparently were not the only ones who thought that running at the lake front path was a good idea as the parking lot was packed. That's what you get for 52 degree temps the first weekend after New Years Resolutions are set.

Tonight we have tickets to a Blackhawks game against the Detroit Red Wings....so GO HAWKS.
