Fiat Lux: Winter Sunset

Seized an opportunity yesterday to run in Rockefeller State Park Preserve as the winter sun began to flee behind the ridge.   I have been seizing such opportunities since 1980 when I naively ran in a 10K race out of Kenan Stadium at UNC-Chapel Hill.   Ex-smoker, but somewhat in shape.  The first half was downhill towards
Finley Golf Course.  Second half back up the hill!!!  I was the last person up the hill, actually dodging cars.  Then into the stadium for one lap around the track.  The remaining crowd  cheered generously loud and long for this last dog in the race!  I was hooked.  My new lifetime passion for running began that day.   REM
