It’s snowing again. The sky was gray and solemn today in anticipation. There is only a dusting so far. I was thinking about a hike in the woods I went on back in April 2004. The fall leaves were still plentiful on the ground. The new leaves had yet to fill out the trees. The spring wildflowers were in their glory strewn with reckless abandon across the ground.
Last night, I skipped running because the sidewalks are covered in ice. I wanted to go tonight so I did. I ran in the grass. It was a challenge. I am glad I went, though. My reward for slogging through the squishy grass is the cozy and relaxed feeling that comes after running in the cold and then taking a hot shower.
Take care and thanks for reading.
