Sunday's Run: Cloudy with a Quartet of Birds - So Very Portland.

Sunday I went out for an early evening run.  The day had been bright, and I was seeing a soft, warm glow of the beginnings of sunset when I decided I needed to pull my shoes on and head outside.  It was cooler than I had expected, and I was happy I bundled up, heading to the waterfront to visit the well-known bridge loop.

The sky was putting on quite a show, varying in light puffs of cloud to the dark menacing threat of storms.  I had a ball capturing the many different beautiful faces of Portland clouds with my iPhone (which thankfully, did not shut down this time!).

The run felt great - to get out and be able to photograph the little things that catch my eye make each experience of lacing up and getting going two hundred times more exciting.  The world we live in is so beautiful, and I cannot stop admiring her.

I am looking forward to the long run with Saturday's Run group of gals.  Secretly, I am hoping it will be foggy ... That would make for a gorgeous photo story!

What is the weather like where you are?  Do you have to wear special gear to get out in the snow? I've heard something about putting screws in the soles of your shoes for ice and snow... Does that work?

Happy running everyone! ~Alaina
