It was so moist outside today. After it rained a good portion of the previous night, I awoke to find the world pretty damp today, and even the air was humid. (At least by Colorado standards) There has been a lot of precipitation lately, and as a result, the ground was somewhat muddy, there were standing puddles all over the place, and almost every plant is turning dark green. There was a fine mist in the air which didn't really clear until the final mile of my run when the sun finally burnt free of the clouds and warmed things up a bit. While I'm not a big fan of mud, and it was a little chilly for most of the run, there was something magical about the world this morning. It felt fresh and clean. It's how I imagine Ireland to feel for some reason. It's supposed to keep raining this week, so perhaps my Thursday run will also have this feel to it. We'll see.
