Perfect Running Weather

After weeks of very un-holiday-inspiring 80+ degrees, the temps here in South Florida finally dipped below 75!  Sweet and sour chicken, it is GLORIOUS!  As Norah said this morning, "It's nice out here."

So, I took Caleb for a 3 miler, and it was cool enough that I felt justified that he ride suited up in his fleecy Christmas jammies.  Jerry suggested he also be bundled in a blanket, but I knew that wasn't necessary -- we're spoiled here in FL into thinking that 65-70 degrees is "freezing."  The run felt great, as it always does when the temps fall below the typical we-own-a-condo-in-the-inner-circle-of-hell temps.  When it's like this, I feel like I could run all day.

The good weather, combined with the fact that Jerry took this week off work for a "week of Jerry time," has meant some extra run time for Jess!  If only I could have a house-husband and cool weather all the time!

Still too warm for my Canadian blood, but glad you are enjoying some comfortable (for FLorida...) temps. Meanwhile, I ran in snow today!

I always visit Sarasota in January and simply love the weather at that time of year! Glad you were able to get in a nice run!

Sounds perfect!

That's hilarious! 65 around here means I'm likely to find at least one of my kids in shorts and flip flops...

Our temps just took a nose dive! I am actually going to need long pants for work tomorrow and tights for my runs outside.

Your weather sounds amazing. And I just had hubbs home for 6 days in a row. It was crazy unusual! Thanks to PA buck season.

I live in Florida (Tampa Bay area), and I totally understand! I LOVE your description of the usual temps. So true!
