ORN: 10.3 miles, easy
Running this morning on our city's trail through Happy Hollow Park, I caught up with an elderly man out for a walk on this beautiful morning. He was moving crisply, though with the slightly stiff, uneven gait that happens with age.
As I pulled even with him, I greeted him and commented on what a great morning it was, referring to the weather.
Without missing a beat, he smiled, looked me in the eye and said "Any day I'm alive is a great morning."
As I got closer to home, I saw a younger woman walking a couple of dogs. I greeted her, commenting on the lovely morning.
Without missing a beat, she looked at me and said "Yeah, but it could get hot this afternoon."
