First Run of 2010

Didn't run the Frosty Nipple (too chicken), didn't run Resolution (not available), but I did manage a chilly 7 mile solo-scamper this morning. The temperature was a frosty -30 celsius (-40 w/c) so proper layering made the difference between life and death, or at least comfort and discomfort.  I snapped a few pictures with my wife's Nikon D80 in a fleeting attempt to capture the magic of the day; I hope you can see beyond the -40 and appreciate the real beauty of running on such a magnificently crisp day.  Just being healthy enough to survive the chill, let alone run, is a miracle. Happy New Year to you all.  Thanks for following this old blog; these ramblings of an aging, but passionate runner.  I raise a glass of Chilean Syrah 2006  to you, and to you, and you, and you, and you....


It's a good day to be alive and warm.  If you click the pictures they get big, really big.  And one final thing... yes, my nose is on the large side, but NOT that big. My son the photographer tells me it's just the wide angle lens making it appear potato-like!  :>)  Mike
