The Fleet Feet crew had a training run along the river trail this morning. Seven miles, I think; I wasn’t paying attention. Glorious weather for it: At this moment, it’s 69 degrees outside, and the sun is shining. I think it was in the low 60s when we started, as I was actually a little chilly until we got moving. We ran a little faster than our usual pace, which was fine with me. When the weather is nice, I don’t mind working a little bit harder.
I saw a flock of barn swallows zoom across the trail near the beginning of our run. I’d never noticed a barn swallow until I saw three of them playing around the overhang at Joseph’s in Santa Rosa, N.M., last month, and now I seem to see them everywhere. Weird. The ones around here don’t have that blue shimmer like the ones I saw in New Mexico, though. Maybe the light just caught them at the right angle that morning … or maybe their feathers were reflecting that dazzling New Mexico sky.
Hope your Saturday morning is wonderful, wherever you are.
