Happiness is a warm run

April 9, 2008

The canal path is, for most intents and purposes, snow- and puddle-free. I nearly flew along it this morning, hitting my stride so much faster when I don’t have to stop for cars and crosswalks. I’m sweaty and spent and grinning; staring at the sunshine out my window I keep thinking “I want to go again!” Madonna might be on to something when she says* that those who run seem to have all the fun.

*I envision my dissertation defense looking something like this.

  1. I can’t believe everything is melted there. Last I was in the neighborhood the canal looked like the Antarctic…

    Neither could I, until I saw it with my own eyes. This morning was the morning, when I walked around and saw grass where yesterday there’d been snow. Literally happened overnight – I even did the cartoon blinking and eye-rubbing. There are still lurking white mounds, but it is receding.
