We've had some horrible bombshells dropped on us the past 4 months and the most recent has made us appreciate what we have. Our run conversation focused on this. While there is icky stuff happening in our lives, we appreciate where we are and what we are able to do in spite of it all!
Rachael has been pushing me to do some exercises with her in the evenings. It's a different one each time and the last one really shocked my muscles. Holy cow! My calves have hurt for the past couple of days. I had to get out and get a run in to work out the kinks. I didn't want to do 5 miles, but I did want to get out. We ended up with 4.
The run started with 10:41and I felt like I was pulling Bill along the entire way. We finished with a 8:31 pace, however. Yeah, that's what I like. Life is good.
