I want to have a rambling, whiney, slightly incoherent blog about the weather. Here goes.
Yup, it’s cold. It may be colder where you are, but where I am it’s cold enough for me. Too cold if I’m being honest. Each year we’ve been here in NC it seems the winter has gotten a bit colder. Hopefully, this trend isn’t going continue. I really hate when the weather person says with a wry smile, “Normal high for us is 50 degrees, but today we’ll top out at 38!” (or 42 or something below 50 degrees causing me to snarl and give the tv the finger). In fact, we haven’t had many days this year that have hit 50 degrees. So the tv has seen lots of the finger. Poor tv.
Don’t get me wrong, I love it here. It would take a lot to get the two of us back to Florida (and when I say a lot, I mean pretty much never ever going to happen). And I realize that this is the nicest time to be in Florida: Jan – Mar. The other months aren’t worth it. Believe me, I know. I've done far too many hard run workouts at 4pm in August to even remotely believe that I won't have premature aging and/or skin cancer. But I still reserve the right to complain about the weather because this is my blog and what good are they if you can’t rant and rave once in awhile. So while I know that there were some tough souls that rode outside this weekend I was not one of them. My cut off is 40 degrees and the feels like temp was not really close to that. Now I realize that maybe some of you reading this are far up north and don’t really ever get to ride outside during these months, but here in the south we ARE used to riding almost all year long. Bundle up and your good to go. Not this year.
Running is a different story all together. I may grumble a bit as I start off but really you can get away with running when it’s cold and not have any issues. It’s really quite enjoyable to the heat.
And as Marty would say: That is all.
