The sun is coming up later and later each day and the cloud cover smothered any hint of morning light. I plugged in my headphones and hit the start button on my phone. I wanted to start the day with a strong run and some good words from my favorite songs. The day ahead was going to be busy with some fires that needed to be tended so this time alone would help me fortify myself. But I wasn’t alone. There were small bunnies scurrying about in the dark, a few hardy folks walking dogs, and the twinkling of the tail lights from cyclists zipping past me. Thirty minutes, three miles, ten songs, ready to go.
