Spring was the absolute worst thing that could have EVAH happened to our winter. Mild winter? Ummmm, yeah. We were spoiled, at least those of us who had the opportunity to ride in the mountains in January. And even more riding in February and into the beginning of March. Absolutely great training weather. And we never really got that cold. But then spring hit. And it snowed. Lots. And on the weekends. And it got cold, just last week I was on a ride and decided that I have never been that cold before on a bike. Absolutely miserable.
But not yesterday and not today. Yesterday I went for a ride with Beth in the morning, and we ditched our arm warmers and went sleeveless!! We had a great ride too - working the rollers on route 105. Our legs were barking at us at the end. And today? A lovely run at Chatfield that was almost.....hot. Yep, spring is finally in the air. But because I am from Colorado, I know to not be fooled.....another snow storm could hit. And I certainly won't plant anything in the yard for another week. And my arm warmers and gloves will continue to live in the back seat of my car at least for another month.

Ahhhhh, welcome spring! And please please please stay for awhile!
