This winter, the intractable clouds and absent sun have given us an excuse to stay indoors. If only the sunshine would bust through the clouds, we’d rush outside, our faces tilted upward. The touch of our life-giving orb would caress our cheeks and remind us that we are alive so much more than automatons going from one box to another.
Every now and then something else wakes us from our semi-hibernation. The Bundle-Up 5K Run in Wenatchee on Saturday called to us, and 505 people, young and old, responded.
