This weekend was glorious. I'm not normally one to use the word "glorious", but it is really the only word I can use. It was hot, sunny, and it was a long weekend at that! It started off with a sleep in on Friday morning and then a delightful sit in the sunshine. Since my lovely sister was due to arrive in the early afternoon, we decided to wait until she arrived so that we could all go for a run together. At about 2:30 on Friday afternoon, it was close to 30 degrees. I'm not sure I had run in heat like that since August. I'm not sure any of us had run in heat even close to that in too many months (well, except for that Heather, who ran in Maui the other week...but she claimed that barely counted) so it was a bit of a rough go for all of us. But at the same time, it was so nice to be out in the sun! I think I was still hot and red when the picture was taken almost 2 hours (and one slurpee) after we finished our run.
It was great to enjoy the nice weather with two of my favourite people. Spring has definitely sprung in O-town:
And I love it! I don't love that it is supposed to rain for the next three days, but it will bring out more flowers, more green, and might mean that I won't get sprayed with dust every time a bus goes by.
In other news, 13 days until the Boston Marathon. Although I think I'll be a bit nervous while watching it, I can't wait to be there and to be a part of the excitement. Sure, spectating isn't quite as exciting as running, but it is only half as exhausting. So there's that :)
