Mood: I'm not sure I've ever been happier to see a pink tree
Soundtrack: Jack White "Blunderbuss" and "Lazaretto"
BREAKING NEWS! WE HAVE A PINK TREE SIGHTING!!! To be fair, it was about the most anemic looking pink tree in history with hardly any blossoms, but since it is literally the only pink tree I have seen all spring, it still made me happy. First they took away our ability to interact in society and then they took away our pink trees...things have been in a downward spiral for the past couple of months, but I am choosing to see this pink tree as a harbinger of hope. (I think the word harbinger is usually used in a negative way, but I'm not here for that.) Pink trees and an end to Covid-19. That's all I'm asking for!
This particular run was pretty lame compared to my non-stop Tuesday, but since I had been hobbling about on Wednesday and Thursday with intense soreness, I was happy I felt good enough to get out and move!
