hey all . . . . I ran/walked . . . . . technically SLOGGED thru 2 1/2 miles today. I worked for about 6 hours and got so much done . . . . . I can to two days worth of work when left alone. I got home, changed clothes (I still want my real workout clothes that I don't have access to right now) and went to an old familiar place. in Ashville there is an industrial park and also baseball fields . . . . there is a 0.8 mile loop around the sewage lagoon. I know, sounds lovely but it really isn't bad. This is the same loop that I used to run years ago when I lived in Ashville with Mona. She'd ride her bike while I ran. 4 loops equals 5 miles . . . . I actually trained for two marathons on this loop. I did three loops plus a little extra for good measure . . . . some walking some running . . . . It will take some time but I will be getting back in shape and losing weight. THOUGHTS DURING THE RUN: actually, I started off reflecting and praying. My prayer is simple . . . . make it go away. Protect my step-daughters-they need all the help they can get. I miss the girls but I know that I will never see or speak to them again. I have met and sort of "adopted" a 17 year old that works at the Mex joint. NO, I AM NOT A PERVERT . . . NOTHING LIKE THAT. This girl is shocking. She is nothing like the girls I had to leave but still love. This girl is in school . . . . works TWO jobs, has a horse and takes care of it. I don't say this to diminish my step daughters but it took an act of congress to get them to put dishes in the sink. This child has two freaking jobs AND takes care of a horse. Heck, once things are done I may have to check out her mom! LOL I wanted so badly to take care of the step-girls but that has gone away . . . . maybe I should make this young lady a beneficiary? I know . . . . all that had nothing to do with running but my mind races while my body moves slowly . . . .and that's the way it is.
