Day 442: If I Could Sing This Post

You know how in a musical they break into song when things are really fantastically fabulous?  Well, that's what this post truly deserves.

I ran today!!!!  Not 26.2 miles like my friend who totally rocked the Boston Marathon this morning.  More like a tiny 1/2 mile.  But after not running since early February that is HUGE!!!!!!!  I'm so deliriously happy and giddy over it.  I ran completely barefoot, so I could pay strict attention to where my foot was hitting the ground.  I'm going to adapt to my Five Fingers the right way finally.  And then I'm going to be happy and blissful the rest of my running life!

The most important part of all of that is easing into it.  That's a challenge for me.  But I am going to do it!  I want to have more days like today and fewer (or no) days like when I tried to run three weeks ago and couldn't even do 2 tenths of a mile.  So, I'm going to take it slow.

Hooray for barefoot running!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments that inspire spontaneous musical outbursts!

Maybe you should sing as you run. :0) If you do, let me know if all the people around you join in and start dancing in choreography.

My joy was being able to say "yes" when my niece asked for a ride to the airport tomorrow. I love that I have an opportunity to do what other family members did for our kids when we lived far away.
