2015-12-02 - Tadasana and Shavasana

~9.7 miles @ ~12.5 min/mi

"Deer!" Kristin points out four pairs of glowing eyes near the W&OD trail, reflecting back flashlight beams through the heavy fog. Cyclists swoop past, 80% politely. In the hot yoga studio's picture window Tadasana (Mountain) and Shavasana (Corpse) poses are demonstrated by lithe pre-dawn yoginis. Raindrops patter as they land. We're grateful for warm December weather, the scent of aroma candles, not-slipping on wet leaf-covered slopes, bushes full of chirping birds, cars that pause to let us cross streets, and the chance to begin a day with a quiet run that includes discussions of epistemology, optimism, and kitchen science experiments.
