Slow Sunday

A pretty slow day today. I ran almost six miles on the treadmill while watching a great show on the human body on the Discovery channel. I don't remember the name of the show but it had great animation. It really is amazing how complex the bodies systems are that enable us to actually function. I didn't run the entire distance as I was a little tired. Since today at noon, I volunteered to cook burgers for a mission trip fund raiser. While standing outside, I was amazed at the thermal gain from the sun. It was really pleasant standing out in the sun but I still ended up feeling drained by the end of the day. I'll be glad when the bike paths are clear enough to walk on again as I tried the road this afternoon and it was almost deadly with a light dusting of snow on top of ice. The warmth from the sun doesn't seem to be melting the ice.

Monday afternoon - I noticed the borough had equipment out clearing snow from the bike path. This is another sure sign of Spring. Unfortunately, there will be water on the bike paths which will then freeze at night since the temperatures these days are still dropping well below freezing and even below zero.
