It’s been storming. “A dark and stormy night,” famed author Snoopy would say. There are, of course, varying degrees of darkness and in
all sorts of ways we have been experiencing them of late, whether in the political arena, tragedies in Haiti, or the more mundane almost comprehensible tragedies that just spur resilience and creativity.
The past weekend left few opportunities for sunrises on the east coast and presented more than a few challenges. I think that one of the reasons I like runners is that whether it is the morning training run, a race, or – really – just any daily activity there is something about challenges that they find inviting or maybe invigorating.
We are, in regards to the weather, now in the mop up stage and whether contributing to the relief efforts in Haiti or waiting for the power to come back on or cleaning up back yards, we keep going and even make the best of it, I suppose.
