3 notable things about this run:

1.  The entire town of Rantoul has smelled like vomit/garbage/manure for the last 3 days.  No one knows why.  It bothered me at the beginning of the run, but I probably was mouth breathing for the rest of the run.

2.  I wore a Rudolph reindeer ear band, complete with horns that flopped around.  This is because I started my run from the youth center, had forgotten I needed a hat of some sort, and that was the only thing I could find in the car.

3.  It warmed up yesterday and melted some of the snow, but refroze over night.  It was warmer this morning (33 says my phone), but there were still some spots where I had to watch my footing.  It was also gusty.

Usually that's a sign that your town is about to get sucked down to the fifth level of hell.
