Today is Thursday, April 01, 2010, and it is a good day for a run.

April fool’s, and the trick that I got played on me today was Mother Nature springing (you see what I did there) a twenty-degree jump up the thermometer. When I checked the weather widget before lunch today, it told me 80 degrees, and it was still going up then.

Don’t get me wrong, I understand that almost everybody was in love with the weather today. I, however, had seven miles to run on legs (and lungs) that were definitely used to temperatures below sixty. There was a wind again today, but instead of being an obstacle, like on Tuesday, it was actually welcome when I felt it; it was a nice cooling factor, and not nearly as strong as last time.
