Whatever Blows Your Skirt Up

Awwwww....finally....Fall has arrived in Houston!!!

Even though the forecast was calling for 30mph winds and even gusting higher all day and into tonight, I knew that I wanted to wait to do my run today.  When I got up around 5, it was 70deg outside.  Before I left the house at 6:30, the temp had begun to drop and the winds were crazy!

The cold front was pushing through!

By 8am it was 60deg.


During the day I got on my favorite site for mapping runs to map out a route that ran East and West.  I had dealt with enough of that N/S thing when its windy thing where I use to live and I don't want to do it again!  Where I live now I have a lot more options with nice neighborhoods all around and sidewalks all over as well, no busy intersections to speak of like before, so I just love, love, love it!

Here in the Fall and Spring we generally have a lot of very windy days (this past Spring was one of the worst I think), so having options to run with a cross wind is welcomed.

Which no matter what, when its windy out, no matter what direction, wearing skirts is really never that great of an idea, which is sad for me because I love my dresses and skirts!!!

This picture has Reese's signature all over it, but I actually grabbed it by googling and not stealing off of her blog :)

Had I been wearing a skirt on my run this afternoon, this would have been me.
According to the news the winds were 'sustained' at 25mph.

I still was sweaty afterwards, just not as sweaty.
It's the little things.

Supposed to be in the 40's in the morning.  The question is will I actually get up and run in such fabulous weather?
Hard to say.
Do you think I will or won't?  Or did or didn't?  Depends on when you are reading this.  :O)

Um you are totally going to take advantage of that super nice weather! You can't have days like that- especially after your Chicago sauna training season and not run! :)
