an oldie's lyrics came to mind as I was cutting my way through wind, ice, slush, gush, mush etc. etc at the Lake Effect Inaugural Half-Marathon; "mama told me not to come, mama told me not to come, this ain't the way to have fun, son!,this ain't the way to have fun, son"! Nature did everything possible to make sure it lived up to it's name. I dubbed it the race when hell froze over. After running more than 30+ over 15K Races, and dozens of smaller ones, I can honestly say this one was the meanest, toughest, and the coldest. I have such a short memory so I posted this, so maybe next year, it will make me remember this race vividly and maybe I'll think twice about doing it again.

Although this has been a mild winter, I despise cold damp weather draped in boring greys and browns (kinda like a boring old trench coat that I despise) and miss and enjoy the snow and a little cooler temperatures so I can XC ski and enjoy the winter beauty.. .I've posted previously, some winter shots I took when we had snow last week, so I thought I would share some colorful "warmer" images(mostly in the Adirondacks) to get us through until nature decides it is spring...

Found myself recalling and humming a favorite grade school era song the other day entitled the "Happy Wanderer" and boy did that bring back some memories. And I thought to myself how I had kinda grown into this song, as I am the most happy it seems as I hike or run and explore the beautiful countryside whether in upstate, the Adirondacks, Maine, Hawaii or Arizona. I post below for your pleasure or displeasure if you please....just be glad you can't hear me sing or it definitely would be the latter. Fortunately, the only thing I unsettled were a few less than enthusiastic crows. The Happy Wanderer I love to go a-wandering, Along the mountain track, And as I go, I love to sing, My knapsack on my back. Chorus: Val-deri,Val-dera, Val-deri, Val-dera-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha Val-deri,Val-dera. My knapsack on my back. I love to wander by the stream That dances in the sun, So joyously it calls to me, "Come! Join my happy song!" I wave my hat to all I meet, And they wave back to me, And blackbirds call so loud and sweet From ev'ry green wood tree. High overhead, the skylarks wing, They never rest at home But just like me, they love to sing, As o'er the world we roam. Oh, may I go a-wandering Until the day I die! Oh, may I always laugh and sing, Beneath God's clear blue sky!
