I am in Michigan for the Detroit Auto Show. I came into town early and was able to spend some time with Family and Friends.
While staying at my folk's place in, Holly, I went on a cold Winter run down one of the many backroads in the area. When I run I typically listen to music but when running in this beautiful of country, during the Winter, I choose not to listen. During the Winter in Michigan there is a quiet and stillness in the air. The only things to hear on the run are the winds blowing across the open fields, tree branches stripped of leaves rubbing together, the chatter of the few birds that stayed for the Winter, your own breath and the crunching of the snow as you run.
I had always loved running in Michigan in the Winter but it's funny how moving away can give you a new appreciation for things that you thought you knew completely.
If you get the chance go for a Winter run in Michigan down a trail or dirt road. As long as you dress properly the cold won't bother you and the scenery and stillness can't be beat.
It's good to be home.
