some days are diamonds

some days are stone
sometimes the hard times won't leave me alone
sometimes the cold winds blow a chill in my bones
some days are diamonds, some days are stone

-according to an excruciating Canadian singer, anyway.

Today was the first "cold wind" day of 2011. More to come I'm sure. But excellent running conditions and many rowers, runners, and cyclists were on and around our lake again this morning. Their numbers are increasing, probably reflecting how our population is increasing, inner-city especially, rather than a sudden surge of interest in exercising. Two Metro Runners who are entering the Weston Creek Half Marathon next weekend joined us today, Ann and Chuan, and ran a comfortable 18k, along with Ewen, Emma, Andy and me. All looks good for the Half.

And, happy birthday Suzie, 35 years old today! Welcome to the new age-group!

OK? "Some days are diamonds". No, I don't know what that means, either.

  1. It was a cool diamond this morning. Beats those warm humid mornings we've been having.
