First jog of the semester.
Today, for the first time since May, I laced up my shoes and drove to my favorite jogging path and spent 35 minutes putting one foot in front of the other.
Laborous and difficult, I put in the time. I ran 2.66 miles in 35 minutes. We are talking slow....even for me. But that's not the point. The point is that I went out there and did it.
And I enjoyed it.
It was fresh and sunny and beautiful outside.
There were baby ducks, dogs, and turtles.
It was 80 degrees with a blue sky; really conditions don't get much better than that.
I am so happy to be back running. It felt great to put my body on autopilot and just go.
I hope everyone else is getting their own fitness minutes in this week.
