the gloves came off…

…along with the hat and jacket.  It reached the mid 40’s today when I went out to run in what I initially refused to believe was a mild sunny afternoon, having been shell-shocked by this long winter.  It was true, and able to run in light gear for the first time in many months, the body, finally out of its shell, revving to go, took off ahead of itself, almost falling/tripping over in haste like a baby taking his first steps.  Didn’t trip or fall over, and had an exuberant 10 mile recovery run (sore from yesterday’s intervals) in the park along with dozens of runners appearing out from hibernation.  Ran longer than had initially intended, but you make full use of gifts like this.
