The weather this weekend was fantastic for winter in Illinois. I ran 5 miles today to take full advantage of the reprieve from winter. I even had short sleeves on for awhile. The best part was the sun. I love the sun. It made the winter brown seem slightly more alive. I stopped by the local elementary school on the way out and the way back for some pull-ups, dips, and a flip. It was a fabulous run. I will tuck this weekend into my memory to pull out when needed as I try to patiently wait for the real spring.
