Things are finally starting to get warm again in Brentwood. The day time temps are in mid to high 70s. More importantly, the morning temperatures have been in the mid 50s. After an eternity of cold and wet (by California standards, sorry my east coast friends) it feels good to lose a few layers and be able to use my fingers after getting back from a run.
Its pretty amazing how different 45 feels than 55, given they’re not all that far apart. At 55 degrees, I’m almost thinking about ditching my light running gloves. I think I’ll stick with long sleeve but light tech shirts for a few more weeks, then with any luck it will be back to short sleeves again.
In the sad, but true category. I realized that a fair number of my running shirts pre-date my kids. I’m slightly amazed that my 2007 Mountain Goat race shirt (which I happened to run in for my one and only marathon) still looks pretty good, even it has some serious permafunk baked into it after 11 years of service. I’m kinda surprised that its pretty loose these days; I’m not sure if its because I’m smaller now or its just super stretched out. Probably time to drop some bucks on new shirts.
