It felt like everyone had vacated the Calgary downtown towers at lunch today and were out for a run or walk. Me included. The pathways were packed. It’s great to see so many people getting some fresh air, stretching their legs, and getting energized for another afternoon in a cubicle again.
I sure needed the run. I had skipped two days in a row, even with the nice weather because of … well… life. Life just gets in the way sometimes.
The economy is slow around here so many people don’t have the workload pressures they have in past years. So I guess that means more and longer lunch hour runs for a lot of people. It probably means longer lunches on the outdoor restaurant patios too, but I’m not in that scene. I just whiz past them.
It is a long way from spring yet, but the temperature was up, the sun was out and the ice along the river was melting fast.
Looking at how many pictures I took on one run, I am now wondering whether it was a hard enough run. But it was a fun run, at least.
This weather, and the thousands of other runners are a great inspiration for the spring races coming up.
See you out there for a #runch sometime.
