Rest day, as we took my daughter out for dinner for her birthday.  In bizarre end to evening both my wife and I hit deer on way home.  I had driven to restaraunt seperate because I came straight from work.  Driving home I was in front of my wife on a curvy, wooded road when two deer came running out of woods.  The first one got past me, but I clipped the second one.  (some minor damage to front end of my car.) Unknown to me, some of the rest of the group of deer went behind me and one of those deer ran right into front of my wife's car (which was basically stopped at that point) (again, thankfully, minimal damage)

Last year on this date it was 75 and sunny.  The year before that I ran in shorts.  I don't usually like to live in the past, but this week I might.

UPDATE Feel like a wimp, but couldn't bear to run outside today, so I got on trainer.  Worked hard for once, especially on sprints.  Brought back memories of old days of Jorge's winter plans (in fact I think this was one of those sessions)
