happy winter solstice!
winter officially arrived tonight at 6:03 pm (eastern time) - the shortest day, longest night of the year. the best part of the solstice is that the days start getting longer again (until summer, when the process reverses itself)! since winter arrived early this year, the cold weather isn't much of a surprise. both of my runs this weekend were sub-freezing - with the temperature unpleasantly stuck at 30 degrees each morning. it's hard to believe we have another couple of months of frigid temperatures looming ahead. still, on a positive note, each day brings with it a little more daylight :D
