THE PRACTICE

New Year’s Day morning run, 8+ miles, 1000’ of climbing up Mount Sentinel and across. Fully clothed with everything I could locate including cleats and gaiters, extra underwear and …. after all it was just 3˚F and with a 10 knt wind in the valley corridor, but just a light breeze along the slope trail.

Get up, feed the cat, have a drink of water, get dressed, say a prayer for others, put a mark on a blank sheet of paper . . . and go out for a run; the practice.
