mississippi river road path, north
52 degrees! Sunny! Radiant. So many yellow trees, some gold, some paler yellow. A red tree near the lake street bridge. I planned to run with my playlist again but when I started running, it felt wrong to shut out the wind and the crunching leaves and the cars gently driving by. So I took off my headphones. Today’s injury recovery run was walk 3 minutes/run 2 minutes X 6. My knee felt a little sore during the last three runs, but not too bad.
3 versions of the wind I heard today
- shimmering (or sparkling, not whispering) wind that passes by, or that you pass through, almost like a curtain
- wind that sounds like the gentle roll of boiling water
- the wind that picks up the dead leaves on the path and swirls them around, lightly, not vigorously
