Saying thank you for (unexpected) stillness

After midnight, the winds will pick up. Hey, I know these things; I’m an avid hourly forecast watcher; I am addicted to Traffic & Weather Together On The 8s.

When I went out this morning to run, clad in my trusty windbreaker, hat my dad gave me etc., I was expecting wind today, too. It was my fighting companion on Tuesday, and I  figured it would be today, too.

Well, I was, I’m happy to say, wrong. The morning was still; it was starry, both of which more than trumped the not-so-biting cold. I had a beautiful run.

So for unexpected stillness, and for stars that guide my way, The Grateful Runner says thank you.
