A Running Commentary on Outdoor Adventures on my Metal-on-Metal Resurfaced Hip
Tuesday, December 25, 2012
Got my running goal for 2012 met, this fine Christmas day - 600 miles! Wonderful time with the Delucchi's and friends last night - that was my Christmas bonding time. Today would be for work, and for a good long run. The skies were dark and getting darker, with the first few sprinkles coming down ahead of a powerful storm. Not good for a bike ride, but perfect for a local run, up into the Pogonip to the University and back. Met some interesting mushrooms, ancient gravestones, fallen trees, lots of mud puddles, Bay trees, redwoods, and an occasional other runner getting in some inspiring miles. Brought my pocket camera for a few shots. http://www.cabrillo.edu/~rnolthenius/triathlon/Xmas12/index.html
I'm the astronomy program chair at Cabrillo College near Santa Cruz, CA. An astronomy researcher for 30 years, an avid astrophotographer, nature photographer, and triathlete for just as long. I am also a trader in equities. I find a deep need to find, appreciate, and celebrate beauty in all its forms, and to understand myself and the World, and to share that understanding with my students and friends.
