still running

It feels like 10 degrees outside and I'm back from a run. For such cold-weather running, I need a proper scarf, or a cashmere balaclava, or a down burka. In any case, I did two down-and-backs, to stay within 1/2 mile of the house at all times. And yes, I had my ID and my cell phone with two ICE numbers. At my first turnaround, I was ready to throw in the towel, but by the time I got to the house, I felt warm and pretty good, so I ran up the street a little ways, always walking on the concrete and traversing sidewalk-ice as athletically as possible. Not too shabby. So, now I know I can run in non-windy 10-degree weather. And my iPod never fails to come up with a song that cracks me up: today's was “The Boys of Summer.” I nearly fell down.
