warmed by the sun

goal race: Buffalo Marathon 5/29


After yesterday’s windchills in negative twenty-somethings, today was a balmy 12 degrees F during my customary Sunday double, a morning 7 miles then an afternoon 8 miles with my son.  The sun shone brightly and lit up the day, reflecting off of all the snow.  Made the cold day seem not so cold.  

Snow on the ground were packed harder today, so the footing was improved.  Still it was a workout getting through all the snowy sidewalks and paths.  Felt the burn, a successful day of running, especially enjoying running with my son.  And more to celebrate was my son being accepted to one of his top college choices.  Very proud.

    Congratulations! Good for him 🙂
    Is it a school he can run at? I think it’s great you two can run together. I’m sure you get to know each other a little more each time through that.

    Thanks! It’s one of the City Universities in New York. It’s a great program and location for what he wants to pursue: the film/tv industry. While it might be too much of a commitment for him to run for the school, there are some great choices of running clubs in NYC that he’ll probably join and run with.
