28 April 2013

PICTURE THE SUN splitting the trees. Winds gusting strong enough to catch your breath. The fresh April air still cold enough to whisper with conviction that winter isn’t long past.

Picture the expressions on their faces from trepidation to exhilaration. Fun-seekers and record-breakers, all gathered together in an open-air communion that is one of the uplifting qualities of many outdoor sporting events. Free article
