Cold Running

The best most of us can do is to be a Poet an hour a day. Take the hour when we run . . .
Take that hour away from being serious adults and become serious beginners.
- Dr. George Sheehan

What other kind of running is there in Chicago in January? So this morning I persevered for a short run in the cold. Once you get moving your body heat keeps you warm and in the cold I perspire slightly less than I do on warm summer days. Listening to the music of my favorite classical FM station helped as well. It was good to get out and attempt to shake off the cobwebs of the night with an early morning awakening - cold running.
