Frost, grapes and new roads

I’ve been remiss in my weekly ‘three beautiful things’ post – mostly because Thursdays are no longer beautiful for me with 9 hours spent in a classroom working my brain around concepts like cavitation and ultrasound waves or concentric and eccentric muscle contractions.

Here are a few high points from last week:

1) As I head out for my early morning run, my headlamp scans the grass on the side of the road…and the grass sparkles back at me, thick with frost, but only on the top layer.

2) The smell of wild grapes warming in the sunshine as I run past makes me smell the color purple…and I cannot resist the urge to buy grape juice later that day.

3) On my long run, I veer off onto a road that I normally reserve for cycling. The road looks completely different when viewed from this slower pace and lower place, and my risk-taking pays off with great views and friendly neighbors.
