Lightfoot Listening

I laced 'em up Tuesday morning while it was still cool out. I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm going to miss the cool/cold weather of winter here in a few weeks. I ran through Baldwin Park at a swift pace with feather light legs pumping away and regulated breathing. I couldn't have been happier.
Today I had no time for anything but squiring around a reporter from National Geographic who was absolutely fascinating to listen to as he relayed his well worn stories of the world and his global social and political philosophies that have evolved from those travels. Somehow, to my pleasure, he enjoyed my company and accommodations made in researching his story on the schools of Orange County. It was as great as day as I could imagine without running.

Now when you say cool/cold weather, what kind of temperatures are we talking about? 'Cause right about now, I consider anything above 30 degrees to be "warm" and if the temperature went up to 70, that'd be "hot".

It was 24 here last night, and I don't even want to think about the Canadian runners. Sounds likes a great day for you, though.

The weather today was beautiful... it would be great if it continued. I ate dinner outside and then attended "winter with the writers" at rollins, and was laughing at the irony that "winter" is 78 degrees... if only that felt so good when running!

I was thinking that this morning. The cold weather makes it so that you could run in the morning or evening and the temps don't matter. Summer is nice because its warm and there's no snow, but the mid day and some evening runs are out because of the heat.
