New England! Have Mercy On Us!

Last weekend, we quietly broke the record for the snowiest winter ever recorded in the City of Boston: 108.6 inches. We all agreed that we deserved the title. I ran my first race in months and certainly felt the snow weeks lost to training and my race cancellations in February. Time to get back on track! You would think that we’re in the clear now but oh no! On the first day of spring yesterday, it started to snow in the late afternoon and looking out the window right now, it is still snowing… Can we stop this, please? It’s almost April.

Done!

Letztes Wochenende haben wir klammheimlich den Rekord für den schneereichsten Winter, der jemals in der Stadt Boston erfasst wurde, gebrochen: 276 cm. Wir waren uns alle einig, dass wir den Titel verdient hatten. Ich nahm an meinem ersten Wettlauf seit Monaten teil und das verlorene Training durch die Schneewochen und die abgesagten Rennen im Februar machten sich schon bemerkbar. Es wird Zeit, das wieder aufzuholen! Man könnte meinen, dass wir aus dem Gröbsten heraus seien, aber oh nein! Am ersten Frühlingstag gestern fing es am späten Nachmittag an zu schneien und wenn ich jetzt aus dem Fenster schaue, schneit es immer noch… Kann das bitte aufhören? Es ist fast April.

There was that one day on March 11 when it was almost 60 degrees. We took it off and were spreading snow in the driveway. It melted in second. I even got a sunburn that day. Apparently, that was just an illusion...

Apparently, that was just an illusion… Da war dieser eine Tag am 11. März, als es fast 16 Grad waren. Wir hatten uns freigenommen und verteilten Schnee in unserer Einfahrt. Alles schmolz so schnell. Ich bekam an dem Tag sogar einen kleinen Sonnenbrand. Scheinbar war das alles nur Einbildung…

      Tell me about it! This morning during my run, it felt like I was running in the dead of winter. Now the sun is finally out, and everything looks much better!
