Comic: Spring Running

This is Pi Day #044

As much as I dread running in the cold of winter, there is a few weeks each year when the seasons transition. The snow begins to melt, the days get longer, and the paths turn into a muddy-icy-dirty obstacle course of treacherous adventure.

This week’s comic is inspired by a recent spring group run (even though I’m publishing it on yet another bitterly cold late-winter day!) By the time we returned from a couple hours of dodging ice dams, hopping around puddles, and climbing through not-quite-melted snow drifts we were all a little colder and wetter than anticipated, and at least one of our party was bleeding and due to be a little bruised and battered the next day.

Sigh. Say it with me: Summer is just around the corner. Summer is just around the corner. Summer is just around the corner.

Hey! Me too! What a coincidence.

This is Pi Day is an independent web comic about fatherhood, running, video games, science, art, independence, integrity, imagination and just generally ... family adventure. It is created, written, illustrated, and promoted by Brad Salomons from a quiet suburb of a remote Canadian city called Edmonton, Alberta.

Looking for more pi? We regularly celebrate at the great circle of math, science and technology culture. This is Pi Day has been calculated as the product of one geeky dad, one curious kid, and an irrational volume of corny dad jokes.

New full strips are published on Saturday mornings (and shorts, appearing randomly whenever I draw them). This is Pi Day will always be free to read on this site, but if you enjoy it please help me out by sharing the link on social media or supporting in other ways.
