Mother and son run
February 15, 2010
It's a lovely route, along country roads and wooded areas, and there's no traffic or any urban activity. I had forgotten snow can be beautiful in my longing for Spring, but this morning I ran through pictures that were worthy of Christmas cards.
Normally I'm a bit hesitant to enjoy the lonely beauty of wooded areas, but this time I had my son Jan (13) with me on his bike. Together we ploughed our way through the snow, and I felt such joy, to be out running with my son beside me.
And at the end of this beautiful nature run, like the icing on a the cake, there's this beacon for those who would like to have cup of coffee: a big yellow M! So Jan and I had a coffee (me) and a hamburger + warm chocolate (Jan).
'Isn't life wonderful, on this Monday morning?' I mumbled.
And Jan nodded and took another bite out of his hamburger.
Isn't it great how well running and motherhood can be combined?!
