That's the current weather and forecast for Oakland. Light rain in this case means that cold, misty sort of rain that you know was snowflakes just before it hit you, and lots of it. 49 degrees seems a bit optimistic, or maybe it just feels that way because of the cold wind blowing in off of the bay.
How do I know this? Well, you see, it's like this... I've decided to start running again. I'm repeating C25K, and this time I'm going to do it outdoors like a normal person, at least for a little while while I see how it goes. To prove to myself that I really mean it, I decided that I didn't care what the weather was like-- I was going running. It's not at all clear to me whether this was a brilliant move or an insane one
In any case, I finished. I was cold and wet when I was done, but it wasn't all that difficult. Maybe I've finally learned to pace myself?
