We'll see what February brings. At the very least I should be able to leave the fuzzy hat and gloves behind here and there.
Well, yeah, I did, but that was true of a few glorious days in January too, I think.
To take a more positive view of the past month, I guess we didn't have as many weather warnings as in January ... and I know that the shorts count was higher despite having fewer days in the month.
I got to wear shorts four times on outdoor runs this month: Feb. 13, 17, 18 and 19. Two of those days were even short-sleeve days to boot.
January's total was only three, which really, given that I live in the Midwest, is nothing to scoff at.
Still, while I'm not itching to wear shorts in day-to-day life, I am definitely hoping for more running-shorts weather in March ...
... unless the warmup reveals that I'm just not as fit as I was last time I did a 5K, in which case — leave me my cold-weather crutch, please.
