The weekend after St. Pat's was when it became official that spring has sprung in Dallas. The weekend had incredible weather.
Everything was in bloom on the running trail a couple blocks from our house:
And it was jam packed with runners, walkers, dog walkers, cyclists, roller bladers, and probably several other groups I can't even recall.
Mile marker 1 on the south-bound trail (it's the strip inlaid in the path):
And even neighbors are providing further evidence of Spring:
Unfortunately, the other consequence of Spring -- it's warm. And by warm, this is what I mean (and this is only significant if you can see that little time stamp up at the top; 4:39, getting dressed to run, already 70 degrees...):
I think we've already had three mornings over 70 degrees between 5 and 6 a.m. when I start my workouts. Makes me fear that this is going to be a long and ugly summer, but we shall see.
