Running and Way to Go Wednesday

Weather and Running
I hope everyone is having a good week so far. Monday started off with great weather - actually felt like spring. Jason and I got in a good, quick 4-mile run at lunch. It was sunny and about 70 degrees, which felt insanely warm considering the week before I had been running in tights, long sleeves, gloves, and ear coverings.

Though, it was a much needed, mood-boosting run so it was worth it. Definitely nicer than my run on Friday or Sunday. Friday morning's run looked like this:

And also included a run-in with a goose that has it out for me, similar to this
My dad sent this to me as a cruel joke.
There is this one white goose near a park I run through that has run after me 4 or 5 times now. Friday I was so focussed on the storms rolling in that he almost got me.

Sunday's run was stuck inside on the 'mill because of storms. So Monday's run was a nice change of pace. Today I have a run planned with my running partner. But the skies are looking more like Sunday. Not sure if I'll just end up cold and sopping wet or suck it up and hit the old 'mill.

What's your threshold for running outside? It's in the low 40's, windy, and threatening rain. To go or not to go (outside) is the question ;-)

Way to Go Wednesday
Onto something more important than a dilema about the dreadmill - Way to Go Wednesday shout outs.

Heather from Through Heather's Looking Glass got another PR at the Crescent City Classic 10K.

Lindsay at Cotter Crunch for reminding me/us to rearrange our plates.

Kristina at Spabettie for the ever so important reminder that life is too short for so many vague plans.

Leah for finding humor during a very trying time and for an apparently hugely successful turnout for her reading at Tales from the South.
