I RAN!!


I RAN!!!!  (Not like the Flock of Seagulls).  I actually ran…..well it was more like a jog, but faster than a walk.  There was no one chasing me with a sharp object either (see my blog post iBert), there was a Pomeranian on the first cul-de-sac that nipped at my ankles, but no dark figure in a mask chasing me down an alley.  What started out as a walk after dinner to help ease digestion and release some daily frustration ended up as an actual jog.  Nothing like a little Cher “Life After Love” to motivate me to put one foot in front of the other.  It felt kind of good, so I kept on jogging.  There was something about the smell of fresh cut grass and the sunset that urged me on.  After a good while, I began to feel like a sumo wrestler was sitting on my chest, and I found it hard to breathe.  Sometime later my leftover homemade pesto began wanting to make a second appearance (remember I said this “walk” was to help ease digestion).  It was at that point I decided to cool down.  (I don’t want to make any enemies by puking in my neighbor’s yard!) 
It was a good time to stop because mosquito control was coming down the street.  During my run I decided that I could do this more often.  I also decided that I would document my success, so I took a picture when I got home.  This is me as I am right now.  In a few weeks I will take another one and hopefully have improved.  (Boot camp starts next week.)  

As I turned the corner back to my house "Good Life" by One Republic came on my iPod.  I thought this really is a good life, and I am thankful.
