Burr, it's cold. Well, not really.

I am so loving the weather these past couple of days. Usually, I'm a strong advocate for the sun and all its glory. But, since I've taken up training for two half marathons this Spring and Summer, my true love for the hot sun has demised.

I dreaded hearing the alarm clock in the dark AM and wanted so badly to stay in the covers and keep dreaming. Oh, I hated it. I really hated it. So, when I heard the weather man say that it's going to get cooler this week, I was praising to the cloud Gods up above.

Yesterday, I went out for a 5 mile run around the good ole' neighborhood. A bit windy, but heck, it was 60 something degrees and 4 in the afternoon and I didn't really care. It's been a long time since I had the opportunity to run at 4 in the afternoon. Usually, in Sacramento, 4pm is scorching hot and is really unheard of to be out and about running on the hot pavement.

Today, it's projected to be in the 60's all day and get this.... it's freakin' hazy and grey!!! I loooove it!!!! It's like I'm living in the bay area!

I plan on trying something for the first time this evening with a couple of friends. Fleet Feet of Sacramento puts on runs that are free on Tuesdays and Sundays. My friend, who is interested in getting into running, has been wanting to check it out ever since she heard about these free runs. I decided to join her because it's in one of my favorite places, midtown Sacramento, where the houses are gorgeous. There's a reason why a part of midtown is called the Fab 40's. There's a section of houses that were made in the 1940's that are huge, charming and gorgeous mansions. Ronald Reagan, when he was governor of California resided in one of the houses there. I've included a picture of the house him and Nancy lived in.

Did you know it snowed in Mammoth yesterday? I guess fall is finally here - although the weatherman is saying it's supposed to heat up again toward the end of the week.

Glenn, I know, the weatherman said the same thing is going to happen at the end of the week =( Boo. It's a good thing it's my weekend on at work. Won't be running.
