I ran! I ran 2 miles in 24 minutes. I didn’t walk. I ran. This is good. I was running this before the accident that claimed my brother in law’s life a little over a month ago.
It has been a weird month. My sister and I have been talking so much. We were close before the accident but now it’s a different closeness. I can’t wait to go spend two weeks with her and the kids. I know visiting at her place I’ll stay on top of my running because she has a treadmill and room to run. She also eats very healthy so that will be good for me too.
I think we both need the time. She will be working a lot but I will get to spend tons of time with my nieces and nephews. A is going to love all of the cousin time. We will get lots of outside time on her mid-Missouri farm.
Then we will come back home for a bit before hopefully traveling to Boston to visit D. We haven’t seen him since January. We haven’t decided if we are going to road trip J, A, S, C and myself or if we are going to fly. There are perks to both. We want a nice end of summer vacation. The 13 original colonies will be the big plus of a road trip. I’m a history need and this entices me. J, A, and I went to Washington DC and Gettysburg last year for a few days but this would be different. We would plan it out better so we could see more. Philadelphia would be on the list. I don’t know it is all up in the air with the current way of things. I also would not post any specifics on travel plans before they happened. It is all so far away but trying to plan.
Well here’s to actually running. It’s healing. It makes me feel so good. I am a runner.
