We will Rock You

Running shoes [Nikes]
Blaze orange hooded sweatshirt [Virginia Tech]
Stocking Cap [Virginia Cavaliers~okay call me clash!]
Old Sweat pants [note: need running gear!]
MP3 player
Leash with Dog

Rock Music for tempo and encouragement.
Queen has a great pace~~~

I think I am suffering from an old addiction. Running.
Right now the time and distance doesn't matter like it once did.
This is for fresh air and keeping myself in shape [long hours as a guard...too much sit time...].

Morris runs right along on a loose leash as if he has been doing this all of his life.
What a good dog!

The wind was cold today, but refreshing. That heavy feeling didn't appear in my legs.
In fact~
I think my son would be impressed slightly if he knew that I actually ran ~~ slowly ~~ to the top of our driveway to warm up!
Today I felt good enough to add distance.

How far? I don't know.
To the neighbor's farm and back, to PeeWee's gate and back.

Two renditions of Queen's 'We Will Rock You'
La Bamba....
Chantilly Lace
Mony Mony
Hawaiian Suppa Man
Rockin Robin
Wooly Bully
I Like it Like That
Little Bit O Soul
What's Love Got to Do With It....
Rama Lama Ding Dong
You Can't Always Get What You Want

Oh my, you should see me do a the little funky dance steps as I run along. I'm not embarrassed, I'm having a damn Fine Good Time.

There is another benefit to this madness.
Morris is having a blast and he is surprisingly a very good pacer.
He sees the orange sweatshirt go on....and goes nutso when he sees me lace my Nikes.

Dang Life is Good!
