IT STARTS TODAY OR TOMORROW DEPENDING ON THE TIME ZONE!
This year it happens to be the earliest in our lifetimes according to a Farmers Almanac article. The explanation is a bit long but very interesting for those who recall the first day always being March 21 when growing up! See the times listing for the Vernal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere zones on this page if you wish to know the exact time. [It's the time of the Autumnal Equinox for those in the Southern Hemisphere, which signals the start of Fall.]
See also the link to find the sunrise times for your location by state! Think about scheduling some runs/walks such that you can enjoy the sunrise if the weather will be clear. What a nice way to start the day! Spring is the season that sunrise is earlier and earlier each day. After the start of Summer, the times will become later, and that doesn't seem to be quite as joyous to anticipate, to me. But, if you are in the Southern Hemisphere, each minute of daylight will be more and more precious, so you also have reason to cherish those clear mornings when the sunrise can be appreciated.
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
