they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

making the most of it.

this morning, i went for a run in the snow.
i loved every second of it. it was hard. exhilarating. perfect. quiet.
last year, i ran in the snow a lot. but after a year, your body forgets.
how much it works muscles you're not used to using.
the thrill of the crunch, crunch, crunch.
the shocked looks you receive from drivers, bundled up inside their heated cars.
the sure-footed strides.
the ones that aren't.
the way it feels to, finally, conquer winter.
