Morning Run

This morning before work I was on a long run in the Boise foothills. The moon was half full, but still cast the hills in a cool blue.  Although I run this route nearly weekly, the lunar light threw everything out of reference, making what was old new again.  That, and we’ve had an inversion for the last month, cloaking everything under 4000’. In my first hour I ran under a heard of elk standing 50’ up the hill from me.  I didn’t have my headlamp on, so they likely couldn’t make me out on the trail below them.  But the moon highlighted their silhouettes against the inky sky.  Then I thought to myself "Cripes!  I owe Zina a story!" This isn’t it.  But I’ll get on it this week.
