It has been a long time coming and I think I can finally afford to get excited about it. It's the coming of spring and all of the good things it brings. There are little green bits poking through the earth and snow, the sun has some strength to it and my friends, the elk have returned to the front yard.
My summer friends are back, too! Those good people whose company I enjoy on the trail each year. I have summer and winter friends. The winter ones are the people who live to ski and the summer ones are the people who live to run! So welcome springtime and the friends it brings.
This weekend, I enjoyed a couple of great runs with good people. I also enjoyed a little quality time with both my Mummy and Keith's Mom, Judy and Rennie. I even enjoyed a little time with my stepmom Elsie. How lucky am I to be supported by such a fantastic fan club?
Happy Mother's Day Ladies. You really are the best!
I was lucky enough to enjoy 2 great days out on the trails. Yesterday, Steven, Mike and myself got to enjoy 32km's and 4 hours on the Lake Minnewanka shoreline. We started in snow, had mostly sunshine and finished with little ice balls pelting us from the sky. Typical. Spring in Banff. We had so much fun. Today, another 21km's and 3 hours with Keith, Iris, Darren and Don. The ice which was on Johnson Lake on Wednesday night has disappeared! It was a beautiful spring day.
For those of you who have never been to Banff National Park before, the photos will give you a good indication of what a beautiful, exciting, uplifting time of year it is. Mmmmm. The arrival of spring. I really do live in one of the most beautiful places in the world!
Today's Run: Cascade Ponds, Johnson Lake, Lower Bankhead and Upper Bankhead
