My run this morning was a swift zoom! We flew. The snowy path and the cold air met us with open arms. My run's momentum moved me into writing this poem. These words below are also inspired by the love of running shared between me and someone I met on the road last month as we ran alone, together up a 4-mile mountain pass out of Williamstown, MA.

(Story takes place on Thursday, October 27, 2011, Day 2 of running across Vermont.)
“Today is going to be one of those days that feels like it is morning all day long,” Ian, my running partner for this run across Vermont, says to me as we stride east out of Richmond, VT.

I am on the road again, beginning a "pilot" run for my 50 States Series to launch in full force in 2012! I am running across Massachusetts! My route takes me over 140 miles in 8 days, 15-27 miles a day. I am running solo with a packpack...a true test. Something I have not done before solo. I am excited for the challenge...and for the apple trees of Western Mass!
This run through MA will not only be strides across the state, but also a means to speak at schools along the way about…Continue
