Happy Anniversary!

What a beautiful day!  We are celebrating our 19th anniversary today.  We got to sleep in.  Yes, our four children slept in so we got to sleep in!  It rained early this morning so we didn't feel compelled to get out of bed.  We let our bodies wake us up.  :)

We went out for an easy 5 miles, the Ethanol Loop backwards.  I feel like we have been in a rut running the same path for months now.  Never much more, never less.  We run to be together.  We run to release stress.  We run just to run.  It's routine.  sort of.  I feel like Grug, the dad in the Croogs, "Different is bad." Today I wanted to run it backwards for a new path.  Let's mix it up.

I think it worked.  We didn't talk about stressors, we didn't talk about school, about life, about nothing that bothers us.  We just spent time together.  Year 19 has been a stressful year to no exaggeration, the most trying we have had yet in our lives.  Maybe today starts a better year for us, a new stage for success!

Cheers to a fit mind and body!
