I wrote on Wannabe Runner's blog post that I was going to head out to the gym and knock out a 5K.
I did go to the Y. Turns out, they were closed at 6 p.m. instead of 7 p.m. I was there at 6:10 p.m. O0ps!
In a way, I was secretly glad because I was lazy. I didn't want to run. I drove my happy lazy posterior back to the house, saw Paddy Wag and decided that she and I can do an easy 1 miler. No leash. No Garmin. No nothing. Just Paddy Wag and Me.
I was glad I did it. The heat index was 100, but I was glad I did it. Unlike you summer heat ninjas running megamajillion miles in the heat, I did a full ONE MILE! Nope, it wasn't far. But I think Paddy enjoyed it. This is our first run since Buttercup's death. We all need a good start.
Thanks for all your kind words about Buttercup. I'm ok, really. Buttercup was a brave strong dog. She was found abandoned at the house's mailbox when she was a mere puppy. And over the years, she has had several health problems - and she always bounced back into the pink of health. But she was getting really old and she seemed really miserable. and we know, she is in a good place now.
