I weenied out of my swim this morning. What with a really poor sleep, being up really early to feed the Mammal that Meows in the Night, relieved several kinds of bio pressures, I went back to bed and fell asleep. I figured this was better than trying to swim while feeling cranky.
Here we are, almost ready to run. As far as I know we are the only two members of the Calgary chapter of the SUAR fan club. Those being defined as owning shirts. There's a couple other people here that I know read her blog, but I don't know who's bought a shirt. They are great shirts to run in, btw. We've been buddies quite a while now, and are just getting around to running together.
I added a long sleeved tech shirt, and S from The Mama Runs added a jacket, since by Calgary standards for this time of the year, it was really warm. Just above zero (32 F), and a beautiful sunny day. We ran almost exactly 6 K nice and easy, in about 45 minutes. I didn't wear my watch, and we had a lovely chat. The view of downtown is pretty spectacular from the ridge. I haven't been up there for many years, and there's been lots of changes. Next time I'll take her through Fish Creek.
Afterward was more chatting, fondue dinner, and yet more chatting. Their child is delightful.
On the way home it was just starting to snow, and by the time we got home it was snowing pretty hard. For the first time in many, many years, we had to go through a Checkstop. Right on Crowchild near 26th. They didn't want to talk to us. Glad to see these out and about.
