all weather

January 24, 2020

Back in the Autumn, with Winter looming, I started to think about winter activities that would make the season more bearable. Should I take skating lessons, get into cross country skiing, buy snowshoes? One of the lifeguards at my local pool swims in lake Ontario all year around. That I’d never do. But I admire his sense of adventure. Passion. Discipline. I admire people, so passionate about something, that they’d endure any weather for it. And who find a way to embrace the elements, and weave them into what makes the activity fun, challenging and unpredictable. Variations in weather keep the activity fresh and exciting. I admire people who make the most of Winter. I’m still searching for my version of the lake swim. I used to run in any weather. And maybe one day I’ll return to it. In the meantime, I bought a pair of cheap salopettes. So, at least I’m warm as I walk the city’s snow-covered streets.
