There’s a lot to be said for having a good, short run, especially after a short hiatus. Today was the first time I’d run in over two weeks, due to travelling and illness, so the short 4-mile run from McBaine past the big Burr Oak Tree and back did me good, as runs usually do. And it was our first REAL winter run this season. It’s cold, 27dF, and snowing, but I didn’t mind at all. The snow covered the trail with a quiet peacefulness today, and we had the trail all to ourselves.
