I was feeling lethargic, and was finally ready for my first real run about two weeks after the marathon alluded to in my previous post.
Addison County has experienced some unusual November weather over the last week - in the form of clear, sunny, warm conditions. To someone who enjoys watching the weather, the weather has in fact seemed a bit boring.

WEST ADDISON — A legion of dignitaries and hundreds of residents from both sides of Lake Champlain marked the much-anticipated opening of the new Champlain Bridge on Monday afternoon.
Gov. Peter Shumlin and state Rep. Diane Lanpher, D-Vergennes, were among the Vermont delegates who helped cut the ribbon on the $76 million bridge that was two years in the making.
