Not really, but it sure seems to be getting that way.

My friend from work whom I walk with decided to not show up for work today so I had to go it alone.  Instead of throwing on my coat and hat, I decided to just go outside.  Probably not the best idea.  My first break proved to be very cold, windy and cloudy.  I jogged part of the way and walked back before my fingers fell off at least.

The second break looked much better.  The clouds had parted and the sun was shining and it didn’t seem to make any difference at all.  Maybe 2 degrees, but that’s about it.  I was the smart guy (again) who thought it would be warm enough now at 11 that I didn’t need my jacket and hat.  Wrong again.  I got outside and decided to jog part of the way again.

Third time is obviously a charm as I decided to go outside and play basketball during my lunch break.  This time it was warm enough and I was moving enough that I didn’t need to worry about freezing body part. I shot the ball for a while and – though I am no Michael Jordan – had some one-on-none fun.

Then I hit the gym and fought with the meatheads and teenagers, and about 10 other people in the one little room.  I really wish the gym would expand.  If it wasn’t for my wife and kids enjoying swimming, I would probably just not renew the membership and go elsewhere that had more space and weights.  Maybe I’ll have to discuss this a some point…
