Living in the Pacific Northwest (PNW), transfers me constantly to my experiences around my Avila Mountain; wet weather, mist, fresh and cool air. I simply love it. Many people complain about Seattle’s weather, but I LOVE IT. It doesn’t matter if it rains 120 days straight, I love it. Every morning when I open the door of my home and I see the mist over the lake, and the overcast skies, I breathe deeply, close my eyes, and feel joy. I love this. I really do. And there is nothing that I enjoy more that running at 40+ degrees while drizzling.
After a nice cold beer with Benny at the Michelob Beer Garden, I headed home with 18 miles completed in a day, split in two races. I was Satisfied. Extremely Satisfied.
