Maureen and I did some exploring this morning. We started on the Mo-Pac Trail between Springfield and Lewisville and headed to Lewisville. We arrived safely and somewhat uneventfully in Springfield and then headed south to Lewisville. A while later we arrived in Lewisville almost as uneventfully as we arrived in Springfield. We noticed that she got a parking citation as we passed her SUV on the way to Lewisville, but we were making good time, so we didn't stop to check things out. Upon entering Lewisville we noticed a little diner on the Platte River. It smelled pretty good. We didn't stop for breakfast, although I may take Amber there sometime for dinner. They have this nice little patio outside. Anyway, we progressed back to Maureen's SUV and realized we weren't quite at 12 miles, so we kept going until our Garmins said we covered 12 miles. It is interesting having a running partner with obsessive-compulsive disorder when it comes to mileage.

This was a great run. Perfect weather. Soft trail. New scenery. My legs felt rested and strong.

It's interesting how in life we can travel the same road over and over again. Or we can explore new paths. Certainly a time for both exists.

A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace
and a time to refrain,
a time to search
and a time to give up,
a time to keep
and a time to throw away,
a time to tear
and a time to mend,
a time to be silent
and a time to speak,
-Ecclesiastes 3:5-7

Happy three month birthday to David yesterday. His smile in contagious.
