#498: Winter Excursion

 David recently ran the 16 mile Boston Prep race in Derry, NH

Here he is before the race

And I go off to buy chicken feed 
and garden fencing at the Tractor Supply Company,
saving a couple hundred dollars over island prices.
It was 16 degrees out, I sure wasn't going
to clap for two hours in that kind of cold.

16 miles later,
he rounds the corner to the finish line

High-five for my hero.

Chili and bread to refuel,
with five hundred plus other runners
 in the local elementary school.
All happy and hungry.

Then a quiet visit to Robert Frost's farm.
A runner takes the 'less travelled by road'
and it does indeed, 'make all the difference'.
