The weekend with the family in the Greater Grand Forks was wonderful! Friday night we vegged and watched the Sioux kicks some butts on the ice. Saturday Dad and I hit up some almost-too-good football. UND beat St. Cloud 59-14. We are now ranked 8-1. It will be interesting to see how we are once we get into D-1 next year! Later that evening we all were ready to watch some more butt-kickin' .... live. Unfortunately, that wasn't what happened. We got our butts kicked. We lost... 1-4. It was rediculous.Overall, it was a fun and relaxing couple of days.
My Mom and I were discussing how this is the best time of year for running outside but it is the shortest season. You don't have to worry about the intense weather of the summer that can involve sunburns, being overheated, humidity, bugs.....and you don't have to worry about the other extreme ....winter; slipping on any ice patches and going back and forth between outfits, trying to determine whether your going to wear just 2 layers or 3 layers.
Today was perfect. Some might disagree with me.
I went out for my run around 12pm. The temps were in the high 30's with light sprinkles on and off. There was dense overcasting that gave the impression of other sorts of precipitation not too far away. It is November. Our precipitation can switch from rain to s*** anytime now. I would like to enjoy what we have (or don't have), while it's here. Even though I thought it was nice, I did have to turn the heat on in my apartment for the first time this fall. That's definitely a sign that weather is changing!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
