Alaska

A couple years ago when I was in Alaska for the first time, I got to go snorkeling.  Yep, snorkeling in 43 degree water.  It was really fun.  I got to see all sorts of fish and pet a jelly fish underwater (there were a ton of them!).

Since it’s been several years, you may be wondering why I bring this up.  Well, tonight I went running.  My right (bad) knee was a little sore, and my left shin seems to be developing shin splints ( 😦 ).  Well one option was getting ice, but the pool looked much more tempting.

Now, I’m sure you’re thinking a pool in Phoenix can’t be that cold, well, in a cold snap in October after the sun has gone down, that water gets cold!  It wasn’t quite 43 degrees, but it was cold!!!

 

 

speaking of which… it is definitely time to go back to Alaska…

It is now cold enough to be comfortable wearing socks or long sleeves.

The ice rink opens in 6 days.

Perfect.
