Mild, 17C, but grey and overcast with a bit of wind.  I felt drizzle leaving the house and had a light shower on the first lap, but it was nice.  Did the usual 2 laps of RV, 7 miles total, and had the park virtually to myself for the first lap; I only saw one man and his dog instead of the usual handful of runners and cyclists.  They came out for the second lap though.  I did see lots and lots of geese setting off from the water, some passing very near overhead at one point.  Minor niggles with stiff calves but nothing to worry about.  A straightforward run.
