(A minor rant.) Are you kidding me? This morning, April 18th, we woke to snow on the ground. Now it's just a little bit of snow, but for some reason, this year, we continue to shake our heads and wonder when this winter will end. I, for one, would gladly get behind any effort to place the Chicago metropolitan area under a large dome, where we could enjoy our midwestern existence in a Truman Burbank state of bliss. Another benefit would be that the area outside the dome would revert to wilderness, giving us many more options for trail running.
And now for something completely different...to all the participants in today's Boston Marathon, Happy Patriot's Day and good running to you!
