Take the tiger by the tail
What a winter we've had. The snow that fell in December, which eventually turned into ice, is still hanging on. We've had all of one day this year of 2010 that has been above freezing when I headed out for my 6 a.m. run. And now, with February approaching its final week, it's been snowing since Thursday. Harumph. To top it off, I came down with a cold right when this most recent snow started to fall. So cold in me, and outside. Double harumph. What's a gal to do?

- run north on trails from my volunteer job
- rendezvous with running buddy Connie
- continue north on trails alongside or through cow pastures
- keep a sharp eye out for newborn calves
Pasture three, and there it was: a brand new calf on wobbly legs, then laying down under the watchful gaze of its mother who lumbered over to lick the youngster.
Those babies are going to be popping out all over the place now. There will definitely be more pasture running in the coming days!
