I’m sorry I’ve been gone a few. I had personal health issues to deal with. It’s not something I wish discuss other than it just plain sucks to get old. From my initial doctor visit to the appointment with a specialist, I started feeling sorry for myself and eating junk because food has always been a shoulder to cry on. Two days stuck worrying about things and today I reset my priorities. I had to get back on track for my marathon in May so I went for my scheduled long run.
It was probably one of the slowest runs in a while, but I did all 8 miles I had to do today. The temperature was 35 degrees and it started spitting snow at me the last mile. It really was a fun run and I’m glad I didn’t quit in mile one. Sometimes it’s hard to shut up that little voice in my head. I had to run because it was Scout’s birthday.
Today would have been Scout’s 15th birthday. I still miss her. Summer is doing better. I know she misses her “Foofer”. I try to give her extra attention when she asks for it, even if it’s at 3 in the morning. She’s grieving too.
