January Thaw

Today, Fargo made it up to 41 degrees. How did sport and I celebrate this near-record event? We went for a run, of course.
I didn't even bother to groom, the sunny joy had me so intoxicated.

I know. I'm getting dangerously close...



The best part was that our chosen detour from course prepping included the ability to wear shorts in the January weather.

Shorts! Shorts! Shorts!

Even when I lived in more hostile climes, 41 degrees was never running-in-shorts weather for me. You guys are tough, man!

Hey, is that the back of your building? (or the front)?

Doc Mara said...

That's sort of the "front" (it used to be a railroad freighthouse, so it wasn't built for "curbside appeal." The entrance is on that side, so I would call it "front."

I'm actually getting softer. When I was at Penn State, "shorts" weather unofficially started at 32 degress and under 10 mph winds.

LK said...

Not softer. Smarter. Undergrads are notorious for poor judgment regarding body coverings.

Doc Mara said...

While I might agree with your assessment of undergraduate judgment, I was actually studying for my M.A. degree.

Maybe that explains my stubby mass transit conveyance...

LK said...

Ha ha. Ah yes. I forgot about that. Well, we can blame the California-ness of your undergrad experience then for befuddling you and carrying over into later years...

Kace said...

Wow. At 41 degrees in Sacto, I'm wearing turtleneck sweaters and complaining about the cold.

I feel incredibly soft now.

Doc Mara said...

lc, Kace seems to confirm your suspicions of SoCal softening.

A balmy 41 degrees! I didn't even think about the shorts untill I saw the comments. What struck me was the uncanny resemblance to Zoolander and that you were turning LEFT.
