With this amazingly balmy +4C weather we have been having lately (could possibly reach double digits this weekend!) I have taken my running outside. Let me tell you, running 3 miles outside seems to go a lot faster than running 3 miles on the treadmill! Thank you, Spring, for making your appearance. And as I am zig-zagging past puddles, sloshing through the slush, and spraying both legs full of grime, I am reveling in the beauty (okay, so early spring is not necessarily beautiful) of this new season. I am thrilled to see the snow disappear even if it means all I see is dirt and gravel everywhere. In this new-found freedom of being able to be outside without bundling up in 7 layers for fear of frostbite to every exposed extremity, I take a deep breath! Big Mistake! A deep breath in spring means only one thing - one thing that will forever be etched in my mind as the first prevailing scent of the season - DOG POOP!! Ah, Spring, how I have missed you!
