The "Mild" Des Moines Winter

    One thing that I’ve really appreciated about Des Moines that I didn’t consider before choosing Drake is how much more mild the winters are down here compared to the Twin Cities. From a running stand point, the warmer temperatures and less snow make it much easier to get in consistent and enjoyable training compared to three hours north.
    Yesterday was absolutely beautiful! The high was 47 degrees, and I went running in only shorts and a t-shirt! Back home, it’ll be at least another month before we’d experience similar weather. It’s getting a bit colder again for the week, but I’m thankful for the temperate weather that we’ve been able to experience for the most part.
