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.
