What the ...?

Walking home tonite the sky was beautiful with the moon rising and Venus's belt as Thomas described in a post last week. I'd seen this many times before but had never heard it named before and it was very nice with the moon.

Unfortunately I was about 5 minutes too late in getting home and grabbing the camera so these photos don't quite do it justice. It was nice, you will just have to take my word for it ;-)

However, my run today was not so nice (thus my title). I'm hoping for some warm Chinook weather from Dawn here soon cause 'it's some cold' these days. I was not a happy camper trying to slog out my scheduled 12 miler today. There must be a frustration factor built into winter running, as I know a 12 miler in the summer can feel like a short easy run. Today it seemed more like 20 and I thought it would never end. But it did eventually end after about 1:43. No vaseline again but at least nothing fell off and the windchill was only -16 or 3F.

Tomorrow the forecast is for more of the same so I plan to wimp out on the treadmill. Take that North Wind!
