|At 7am and ~10°F, a ~6 mile run with Stephanie Fonda along Beach Dr in Rock Creek Park makes for an icy moustache plus beardcicles! A big red-tailed hawk, puffed up against the chill, perches on a branch above the road and eyes us hungrily as we pass below. A cowled figure sings and chants to the rising sun from the pavilion near Military Rd. Anny Rosenthal and others in training groups greet us.|
Two hours later, a veritable heat wave: ~20°F! From home, jog ~3 miles to Candy Cane City, then ~8 miles with Barry Smith & Rebecca Rosenberg along Beach Dr. Snowballs blow down at us from trees. They splatter on the asphalt like inverse Dalmatian spots, white on black. Quote o' the Run by RR: "There's always somebody crazier than you!"
