"I'll love you, dear, I'll love you till China and Africa meet and the river jumps over the mountain and the salmon sing in the street." - W. H. Auden
It's spawning season. What a great time to be a runner.
Imagine running along the Niagara River when suddenly you hear a splash. You glance over and see a giant salmon leaping into the air and coming back down into the water with the kind of drama and flair that only a spawning salmon can pull off.
This is what running is all about. Being outside with nature in all of its wondrous energy.
Today while my feet are hitting the road, I won't be looking for miles, I'll be looking for spawners .
(If anyone has a photo of a spawning fish they would be willing to donate to this article, I sure would appreciate it.)
