First Run of Spring

My first run went well. I walked/ran three miles, which included ten thirty second sprints. I’m sure I’ll feel those tomorrow. Most of the time I was on a side road which still has wet, icy, slushy, muddy spots. The road isn’t traveled much, and most vehicles passed me at a nice crawl. All except for the last one. I saw the car barreling toward me and realized he wasn’t going to slow down. I had just enough time to jump to the side, turn my back, flip up my hood and hunch my shoulders before – splat. I hope seeing me get soaked made his day. And I just finished doing laundry.

    Maybe he was preoccupied by all the melting snow. Couldn’t believe it was finally happening.
