mute the storm

wednesday

Another snow storm and it’s not yet officially winter.  Not a back breaker this time, but nearly a foot, enough to disrupt things.  Got in a light 6 miler in the middle of this, a primer for Saturday’s national club xc race.  The snow is falling , the traffic weaving and sliding, and the winds swirling; but was in tune with the steps and strides along the snow cushioned sidewalks and side streets.

As I said, a nice primer for Saturday morning’s maelstrom through the rolling soft wet paths through Bethlehem, PA’s cornfield.  The giant field of masters harriers will be a thundering herd of Buffaloes ready to run you down.  Imperative that I find the peace in the middle of that stampede.  Focus on a runner or two and maybe their singlets, and the rest of the noise and movements will slow down and silence.
