In 2014, spring begins with the vernal equinox on March 20 at 12:57 P.M. EDT.
With forecasted highs in the 50’s in some parts of New England it feels like spring today. While you run your errands and drive the kids to practices today you are sure to see many runners out. This is a day we wait for.
Just like motorcyclist – “Watch out for runners – look twice, you might just save a life”
I’m running the New Bedford Half tomorrow. For me today will be time to catch up on my UMaine Class Notes, work on my business and rest. No running. Some stretching, rolling and perhaps some time in the hot tub.
The New Bedford Half web site says they will have race day registration at the YMCA from 8:30 to 10:30AM.
Here is an article from The Old Farmer’s Almanac about spring and the vernal equinox. The Almanac is North America’s oldest continuously published periodical that harkens back to an era when Thomas Jefferson envisioned a nation of enlightened farmers. Self sufficient and free.
Tomorrow, southern New England goes back to the mid-30’s, so enjoy today. For me, running in 30 degree weather has become quite comfortable. New Bedford is on the coast so runners will need to dress for warm inland running and potential blustery coastal running. It was a great run last year and I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s run.
I’ll have a recap on Monday. They have some cool features this year that I want to tell you about.
Feeling Boston Strong! Run well my friends.
