I mean to say, I THINK today falls in the month of February! Along with Randy R., and Terry B. from St. Joseph, MO., I completed today's 217km Border Patrol route (my 12th personal running of this route, upon counting - yikes) in the best conditions I could have hoped for, considering the month. We started out under clear skies, light breezes, and 41ºF on the thermometer. Diving in and out of valleys, the temperature did fluctuate - but, all-in-all it was very warm, even pre-dawn. Up came the sun, and up shot the temps - eventually topping somewhere in the lower-60's. Acclimated to colder riding from the last few months, I heated up quickly, and ended the day with only knee warmers remaining in place... and in the end I wish I'd ditched THEM, too.
Short sleeves in February, in KANSAS???? Un-real!!!!! LOVE IT! More to come... time for food and rest....
R-12 update: this marks #8.... four to go!!!
I hope everyone managed to get out today and enjoy this amazing weather!
