The warmth felt good, milder than yesterday, and it sprinkled here and there, but it was just right. Ten plus miles today and it was fun.
One man, looked like a farmer, shut his tractor off, walked over and we spoke about a few subjects. A lady in a pickup truck turned around, came back, and told me that she appreciated the hearty wave, and a Talbot County Law Enforcement Officer stopped, rolled down his window, and chatted for a bit. Yeah, it was a good day, wish it could have been longer. Being beside a road, especially Hwy 80, is very enjoyable, and it’s fun managing stuff to fit and rolling with the flow here and there, sweating, getting tired, listening to the outside stuff, hawks, tractors and cars and trucks going by, driven by people with friendly faces.
I have been fortunate to run, jog and walk for a few years now. Doing this has become part of my life, not my whole life, but a bunch of it.
The best part of the day was knowing I was raising awareness concerning folks born with Down Syndrome and money for the Special Olympics. That’s what it’s about.
