Buffalo isn't typically known for high 60 to 70 degree temperatures and beautiful sunshine during this time of year. Usually it is 30-40 and rainy/snowing. Yesterday I took full advantage of this change in climatic zoning, throwing on a pair of shorts and only a t-shirt and happily headed out for a run. Honestly it was just like running in San Diego, only actually slightly warmer.
I noticed something though, there is deffinately a difference between running in the bitter cold and snow, and running in good weather. It is pretty obvious, but I still think its worth commenting on. It is just generally more pleasant all around. The streets were alive with activity, with runners and cyclists and skaters. There were people walking their dogs, couples strolling down to the local resturants, and a ton of people sitting down by the lake. It really was just a happy feeling.
