Haiku Time Again!

gray above, gray below

spring rain falls on Fresh Pond

a run unfolds

It's been a long time coming. I can't remember the last time I went out for a run. For the past month or so, it seems, it's been a 1/2 mile at a time on a treadmill, in between elliptical training and stair climbing or rowing. All indoors. In the gym. But today...

I went OUT for a run. It was one mile, then a little walking, then another half mile.

It felt so good to run outside (at Fresh Pond of course). Cool with a few sprinkles. Gray skies above, Fresh Pond itself steel gray. And in between, Spring is just exploding here in Boston. Cherry trees are blossoming. Trees are showing more green. Flowers everywhere.

And I went out for a run.

[Gee, I almost feel blessed.]

I know exactly how you feel, Kurt. Glad the body's starting to respond positively, and just in time for the nice weather and change in seasons.
