Bleh – another Monday. The current weather outside matches my distaste for today – grey and stormy. Thing is, following a great weekend, I find Monday’s to be even more atrocious. Ah, such is life…
I’m promise I’m not over-exaggerating when I say that 90% of the reason this weekend was so wonderful was because of the weather. I’ve been over this whole winter thing for a few weeks now – the flurries, the dark skies, the cold – and Saturday brought sun & 70 degree weather and My God it felt amazing.
J and I had plans to run Cade’s Cove if the weather was nice but unfortunately he’s been battling a little bit of a cold and wasn’t feeling up to it. I managed to convince him to go for a little hike around the area instead (fresh mountain does wonders for the sinuses, I said). He bought it, and we hoped in the convertible, put that baby’s top down, and headed to the mountains.
We decided to do a relatively short 5 mile hike inside the cove called Abrams Falls where I took oodles of more pictures:
Also of note – turns out if you ride in a convertible with the top down, your pale Swedish skin that hasn’t seen sun in what feels like years will burn. Wear SPF my friends!
And Sunday I got up and ran 10.3 miles. LIKE A BOSS.
What did you guys do for St. Patty’s Day? Any races? Or perhaps it was a race to Sunday morning Kegs-n-eggs?
