The Stars were Bright

You know the ones in the sky. I'm sure the ones downtown at TIFF were too but I don't know about them doing that at 5am.

During my run this morning I got the experience quite the chill since it was only 7C(44F). Definitely gonna be getting some arm sleeves for early mornings and cooler weather. Though it did feel great near 5k or so since there was no sweat pouring off my body like it was a couple weeks ago. I was even getting kind of tricked into running faster than normal with the cool air.

So yeah it was totally dark out and the sky was amazingly clear. Definitely saw some constellations but not exactly sure as I had to pay attention to the ground and cars and stuff. Of course there was a couple raccoons like usual but we've learnt how to keep an eye out for each other and avoid each other as well. Though a cat around the half way mark totally scared the crap out of me. It was getting into a green bin for an early morning meal/snack. When things fall over in the wee early hours its loud. Especially when its less than 5 feet from you.

And on something totally not running related can I just say how jealous I am of those of you who get to dress nice for work. I'm currently looking for a part time job or something now that the boys are in school part of the day, and I was applying to a baking job and I dressed up in a nice pair of dress pants and a nice shirt with shoes that weren't sandals or runners and I felt great! I can be a total hottie when I want to. Think I might even take a picture before the jeans and t-shirt come back out for the park this afternoon.


  1. I love my arm warmers. With them, I'm good to about 0 degrees (32F) and a short sleeved shirt. I actually love running in the cool weather, although I'm sure I'll be cursing it when it gets really cold.

    I hear you on the lack of nice clothes. I'm starting to think I need to get dressed up once a week just because. It would be good for my self esteem.
