In less than 10 days, spring will officially be here. I can already feel it. My running layers are getting lighter, I've stopped wearing a hat and gloves every day, and birds chirp on my way to the el. Daylight savings time is about to begin -- a bit of a shame, since the morning light makes morning runs less daunting, but a sign of summer, no less -- and the 20s are once again considered cold.
Within a matter of weeks, we'll trade boots for flats, followed closely by flip flops. Sunglasses will replace down jackets, and we'll sweat outside vs. shiver.
It's almost here. Hang in there!
