Half Marathon

One more half marathon under my feet.
Ran a few seconds faster than
the one in the spring
felt good 99% of the time
on this run
still had energy left at the end
and did not feel terribly sore.

A different story
on the morning after
but i think I will recover
fairly quickly.
Just need to move
and not sit too much.

Frosty Sunrise

Frosty Sunrise
Originally uploaded by Ontario Wanderer

We have had a flock of Red-winged Blackbirds calling all fall even though most of the migrating birds were gone weeks ago. Yesterday, along with the heavy frost, there was silence from the Red-wings. I thought they were all gone. There were the sounds of Blue Jays, Starlings, Chickadees, and Nuthatches but no Red-wings. On to winter I thought. No, this morning there was the sound of at least one Red-wing calling as if it were March. Wonder if he plans on staying the winter?
