The first night run of the season.
Not the best day of my life……decided to take the day easy, read, write, study, and get ready for this weekend’s clinic….
Did a few chores around the house, and well watched maybe a little too much TV……decided it’s time to rewatch the Last of Us while waiting for season two……and neat thing, there’s a making of the Last of Us on Crave…..pretty cool…..I’m not sure why I originally watched because of the story, or that it was filmed pretty much where I live…and I know a lot of the places that arn’t here well….but well done.
At time’s I was thinking about skipping tonight’s run……..but, well, I went anyway..it’s just that first step…..
We had a good, great FAST group tonight….it felt pretty darned good….and I love winter runs in the dark…I seriously cannot wait for the snow to come….that but of bite in the air, that chill feel really good…
And finding places to run where there are not any street lights evening better, under the light of the moon and stars….
The pace was great…we had a new member join the crew that pushed us pretty hard…..and that felt so good too….glad I showed up…and I guess I have to, it’s my Run Club.
I have no idea how many weeks I’ve been doing this now…..it’s got to be almost into the 3rd year….every Wednesday…
actually longer than that….actually ever since I started running in 1996, Wednesdays, every Wednesday at 6PM……Sundays at 8:30….it hasn’t always been from my store here in St Albert…..it began in west Edmonton, I really didn’t join the St Albert group until I began running out here in 2014…….
The plan was, retire from being a railroader….work at the store a few days a week, instruct the occasional clinic…then I ended up instructing every clinic pretty much all the time, and I managed the store for 6 years….then COVID shut us down…..I started teaching virtual Zoom clinics (and that’s going on and on)…..worked at the store as a sales person, then well, quit that, now I work events, instruct Zoom clinics, lead our run club, and now I’m a race director….go figure…still busy, all the time..
That is a lot of running though, a lot of history……I was so much older then, I’m younger than that now?….maybe.
I turn 65 when the year ends, and the new one begins…….and life turns another page.
