I'm really not a weather complainer but this spring has really frustrated me. It's hard to want to walk outside when it's snowing, raining or just simply cold. Fortunately I have a small gym in my building that has some bikes, treadmills and ellipticals. I just really dislike looking at a wall while I workout.

I live about a block from Lake Michigan and this morning I went out to walk and the wind just cut through even my walking gear (the stuff that is super thin so you don't have to wear a million layers). I was thinking about just turning around and going back inside. Something told me to give it five minutes. And I kept going. The wind ended up rejuvenating me a bit and kept me going (and Jay-Z in my ears). I guess I can deal with this a little longer but some sun would be nice!

    I know exactly what you mean! We had a few nice days here, then BOOM - back to cold.

Don't worry... soon it will be warm!!

emoticon You could have watched a movie and laughed and cried. You didn't.

Instead you were rejuvenated by the wind as you continued walking . emoticon

emoticon Life is good and someday Spring will be here or maybe Summer will just settle in. Whatever, I agree with you. Great that you persevered. emoticon
