I ran!

I went running for the first time in 3 weeks yesterday. What a difference it makes. Instead of lethargically going about my evening, I’m energized and I sit down and crank it out. I went again tonight, this time with a friend’s 2-year-old white lab and it was such a good run. Bauer was so enthusiastic about running that it encouraged me to run like I know I can. Tonight’s run was great. I ran my basic 2-1/2 mile there-and-back route 5 minutes faster than usual and I felt better than I usually do, too. It’s amazing what a good run will do for a person. My 2-1/2 mile run is generally about 25 minutes. I was back in 20.

I am definitely getting a dog that likes to run when I have a house of my own and the ability to care for a pup. There’s nothing better than having an enthusiastic running partner! 🙂
