So this was the Moon at 7 am this morning when I started my first run of three for Friday. Boy was it crisp, Brrr!. Not blue – the moon that is [though could appear so given the right type of atmospheric conditions; volcanic eruptions/pollution] and just off of Full.
The expression ‘blue moon’ comes from the rare [once every 2 or 3 years] occurrence of two full moons in a calendar month. Due to the rarity of a blue moon, the term is used colloquially to mean a rare event, as in the phrase “once in a blue moon”.
Today I successfully completed my challenge to run the dates with 30 miles for Friday and 500 miles this month into the bargain. Now that’s a rare occurrence [much rarer than once every 2 or 3 years too]. Looking forward to a weekend rest.
