Embracing The Weather

I ran yesterday.  I ran, but I waited until the mercury climbed from two degrees to a balmy fifteen.  During my run I actually daydreamed about the beach…  I never do that.  You see, I’m happy in the moment.  I like that we have four distinct seasons in Virginia, and I embrace them all.  Come […]
