White flag

Ok, Winter. You win. Yesterday with wind and snow, I decided to postpone my weekly long, Saturday morning run, for Sunday, supposedly with sunshine and temps in the mid-50’s. But alas, I awake this morning to more of the same. In February, even March, I can accept this, suck it up and head out the door. But not now, Winter, not April. I cannot muster the toughness to do another snowy run. You’ve beat me down, Winter. All I ask for is no snow, with highs of in the range of 55-62 for the remainder of April. Is that too much to ask? I suppose it is. Let’s try again tomorrow.

Snow on my sleeve, naps with pup and our electric fireplace.

B is a big-time Civil War buff, so to celebrate the completion of Step 1, we are taking  a trip to Gettysburg. Despite having seen all ten hours of Ken Burn’s The Civil War, B has given me a reading assignment. Thankfully the writing is good, so here goes.

Whoa, wait: the snow has stopped and um, is that a tiny sliver of the sun I see? Off to hit some pavement, later!
