November Crazies

Meadow Brook Pond
How does this work again? According to Pacific Northwest Guru Cliff Mass, November is the wettest, stormiest month of the year. Add in the time change, sudden darkness and it's grim.  And what am I trying to do usually at this time of year?  Get in a lot of running miles for some event in December.  It never fails.  But then, we can get the calm after the storm and it is still gorgeous around here.  It does help to keep things ever changing because frankly doing the same boring road run when it is windy and rainy every day would mean I cut miles short and grumble to myself about every run. Today was the first "stairway run" and it did not disappoint.  It was super fun combining a couple different Stairway Walks and running in some new areas while exploring some hidden areas of North East Seattle. And the stair count?  459! I added running miles before and after and felt great once i finally warmed up.  It takes a bit to get used to that cold too!
