The late morning sun cast some great shadows on the river boardwalk.

Even though this has turned out to be a mild winter here for outdoor power walking, I’m longing for the days where I don’t have to don all of the winter gear just to get out for my walks.

How wonderful it will be to just head out the door, unburdened by the layers of clothes, the ice cleats, and the necessary weather checks to see how I need to dress.

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome”
