She's At It Again! (Day 5)

Another day done, another workout in the bag. My legs are s.o.r.e....and it feels nothing short of awesome. The four of us hit the road for a mellow 4-mile run last night. Who needs a group run or running buddies when you have dogs? We quickly fell into a synchronized rhythm, sharing an alternate realm of existence where only the fortunate are allowed to go. Travis turned his head back at me, mouth open, tongue hanging out, in a big grin. "This is fun, Mom!" Floyd ran alongside, grinning from ear to ear. I never used to believe that dogs have facial expressions but they really can smile! Side by side we ran, down the path, in rhythm, enjoying our shared experience. We're getting in shape together, one pack at a time.

Glad to see you back at it. I'm dragging butt following IM Loo; but it's good to see someone else pulling out of a slump!

There's very little that feels more satisfying than getting back into the groove of things!

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop. (Confucius). I thought of this quote several times while reading your last few posts. I think you are evolving into something more than you may know. You are conquering the mental challenges of life in a pure and honest way. From what I read of you, you are on a brilliant path, but the path has more rocks in this section than you are used to. The rocks will make you stronger. I love reading your story because you are a super star who does not even see it. That is the kind of honesty people love.

this makes me miss my dog howie because he gets that same goofy look on his face. I'm telling you, running with dogs is the best, no back talk, no complaining, you set the pace.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
