My first run of 2009

My first run of this year was on the afternoon of Jan. 2. Weather was sunny and warm. I enjoyed the easy run of about 1 hour - of distance approx. 10K.

Below are the things I saw during my run.

This is a typical New Year Ornament displayed on an entrance of a house.

Sarcandra glabra - this is in my yard.

A very small shrine on a roadside.

People feeding ducks at the pond near by.

Hopefully, I will be able to train enough for my next race - a 30K run on Feb. 15th.
