Christmas Truce with Old Man Winter is Over!
Summer's in Raleigh are by far the worst. God knows that I hate them with every fiber of my being. But, I always seem to forget just what a sneaky bastard old man winter can be when here rears his ugly head around these parts. Honestly, Raleigh's weather has been rather kind since mid August, so I shouldn't complain . . . But, I will! I know that other people have it worse than I do when it comes to winter, but hey . . . one of the few redeeming qualities of living in the birth place of NASCAR is that the winter's are suppose to next to none existent. I mean seriously . . . if I have to spend the entire week explaining to people why I did not eat black-eyed peas and collard greens (Yuck!) on New Years Day, I should at least be entitled to a few more days of our winter weather Christmas Truce!
Oh well . . . I am 5 weeks away from the Miami Half Marathon where the weather is sure to AWESOME, so bring it on Jack Frost!
