Always love the sight of "my" mountain!
When I ran on Tuesday I was so happy to be back on my quiet country roads. Yes, we get traffic but not what most people would consider traffic. I love my river, my woods, my mountains, even my weather. I'll take the weather to live where I do.
Love the roads I run on, traffic is sparse and
the sights are great.
Tuesday on my way home from a 6 mile run as I round the corner where I saw the moose on my bike, I see a deer. Is this a new wild life route? Will there soon be a moose/deer crossing sign? It looked around as there was a car approaching it and it turned and went back in the woods the way it had come.
After I got back from the run I went out for a bike ride. It was just a gorgeous day, stunning as two women walkers put it as I went by them and we exchanged pleasantries. The temperatures were just perfect for outdoor activity and the skies are clear. The only thing to mar this Pollyanna thinking was the dead snake skin I saw. I like to pretend I live in Ireland or New Zealand and that snakes don't exist. I did not like this reminder even if it was already road kill. Not so great fact about Vermont - we do have snakes. Great fact - they don't hang around in the winter. And people wonder why I love winter.
One of my favorite roads whether I'm
on foot or on my bike.
The weather on Wed. could not have been more perfect for a run. This day I had a turkey come out (slightly different spot) and run up the road in front of me. It was quite comical. Then he took "flight" and disappeared into the bushes. I barely got home, quickly eating breakfast before I took off to ride bikes with two work colleagues. In my life it is much easier to find people to ride with. One woman has a new million dollar road bike and she seemed to float up the hills. Am I jealous? Heck, yes. We went slightly more than 20 miles on a route T and I loved last fall. These ladies seemed to like it too as they want to do it again next week. J was going to quit after 10 miles but pushed herself and did the whole thing. She was pleased she did it.
I've got to paste in at least a couple pics from last fall on the same ride.
And some of you have said you like these reminders to vote for Emily.
