Of rain, running, and air~~
I have to blame my sister in law for this...
I hadn't intended to...
but she politely invited me to 'run' or jog, if you will, with her while I was visiting Virginia.
This morning I realized that my excuses I'd used before perhaps weren't valid.
[Midnight shifts, strange working hours, too busy...you see the pattern]
In fact after 4 days home, I missed our 'jogs'.
I thought, gosh, I could kill two birds with one stone.
I could put Morris on a leash and we could both get our daily exercise in.
This morning was overcast...
At first those legs of mine screamed 'stop! you are killing me!'
When I reached the tobacco shed, the legs said, 'okay, where to from here?'
On the way back home my body said, 'are you really going to run up that itty bitty hill?'
And we did.
Morris and me.
I was warm and alive all over.
Morris was happy.
~~and it is all my sister in law's fault for showing me that I can do it.
