Today, my oldest turned 12 years old. He got an upgrade to his phone, and this cool new laptop that I’m working on, before I shut it down for the night. Today also would have been 15 years that his Dad and I had been married. But it’s not, and we’re not.
So, I dropped off the boys for a Dad’s family party and went on my merry way in cute halter dress, new manicure and gorgeous jewelry. And, all was well.
I met Kim at 8pm for an hour run on the schedule tonight. We got going and were at the Shell station a full minute before we normally are. We hit 3 miles at 30:00 minutes, and felt amazing. For many runners, that’s super slow, but for me…flying. We stopped to get a drink, and it was just the most gorgeous sky. Orange, and deep red blood. As we rounded the catwalk 1.5 miles later, the full moon was staring us right in the face. Took my breath away. We came over the catwalk at 47 minutes, and are usually there at 53.
We had to run 5 minutes further (farther?), and made it home at exactly an hour. 5.5 miles. Fantastic, and felt strong. Plus I’ve lost about 5 pounds, and I can feel it.
The Sunset…and a Full Moon. That, my friends…is a bonus run.
