Cloud banks piled high like mountains of meringue block the rising sun. I leave home at 0510 in hopes of beating ever-early Caren Jew to the parking lot on Rt 28. She says we'll meet at 0600, but when I arrive ~0545 she's already there—as expected! We start running south at 0550. Brush grows thick alongside the Seneca Creek Greenway Trail. It's chilly, temps in the 40s, so we both don windbreakers. After a mile we're warmed up enough to take the jackets off. We walk the hills, and I tread carefully over roots to avoid a fall. At the 2 mile point by my GPS, just after a half-mile marker post, we turn back. Happy Mother's Day, Caren!
