The cold northern air has paid another visit. I haven’t been able to go running since Friday evening. I wheeled the garbage bins to the end of the drive and walked to the mailbox a little while ago. I was walking fast and thinking about running tomorrow. There are icy patches and snow on the pavement. The temperature will likely be in the 20s tomorrow. It is warm enough to run, but probably not warm enough to melt very much of the ice. According to the current 10 day forecast, it should be warm enough to run every day for the next week and a half at least. I am feeling impatient to be running longer distances again. This is because, in spite of the continued snow and cold, I have decided it is spring. Spring means warmer temperatures, shedding layers, and long runs.
The picture was taken in May 2007 in a park near where I lived then. It was a beautiful, sunny, and warm day. The gardens were bursting with colorful flowers.
Take care and thanks for reading.
