Grey Lunch

The unusually warm weather we've been having lately is a curse for skaters wanting to experience the thrill of skating on the canal but it has given runners a bunch of clear sidewalks to run on as the snow and ice melted away. In today's grey day (I think I haven't seen the sun in a week!), I went our at lunch for a short 10k to stretch my legs after the weekend's unexpected performance...
Nothing was out of the ordinary for the 48m49s run except that I enjoyed seeing some former colleagues (twice) as I looped around the bridges. I hope we get a bit of sunshine in time for my next long run, I need vitamin D.

In the meantime, I'm getting pretty excited about the Ottawa Social Run coming up on Thursday.


  1. Yesterday was really gloomy around here too, but I also enjoyed some fresh air and clear sidewalks over lunch. Nice run!

  2. There is to be sun making its way here any day now...see you tomorrow!

  3. I don't know how you folks up there do it. I would be climbing the walls after just 2 days of grey and dreariness (in fact, it's one of the reasons why I was happy to leave Monterey, CA). Hope the sun comes back soon where you are.

    PS - 95+% in my post referred to HUMIDITY, not degrees. We won't see 95 deg F temps until summer (I hope).
