| 2019 | 02 | 02 | the fondest of farewells |

Today has been a very strange day. I wish I could truly describe how odd, but I'm not sure I can do it justice. 

It's been one of those weeks. 

I found two things in the snow today.

One, I hadn't seen in over a year, and I'm simply amazed I recognised it from a distance. Which I did. It was a ring made of two springs coiled together. Half buried, all you could see was a glinting of metal. For some reason I ran at it and retrieved it from the dirt. It's now safely back on my hand.

It's just a bit weird you know?

I've been sticking quite strongly to running 5x each week, getting up nice and early and hitting the road before 7.30. It's nothing record breaking but I am fairly certain it's good for me, given the fact it's getting easier and i'm running further.

Only time will tell.

These are my paddling shoes. You know - the ones I was so reluctant to buy?

Well I just replaced them. 

It's a fond farewell of use.
