No kidding! I was a bit over-dressed for my short bike ride this morning. Holy cow it's warm - and WINDY! Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!

Great weather. However, I joined Mrs. Tortoise at the gym for a 1 3/4 hour workout.

10K meandering around my old hometown in the cold (-15 WC -20). Tried to do some shoveling at the track afterward but the snow was too crusty and I gave up after 50m.

Runpub was pre-empted tonight so a few of us went snowshoeing this morning instead. Dog mountain, short and sweet. :)
