It felt great getting back out there! It felt like the first time in a week that I’ve been able to clear my head, get lost in something, and just focus on something other than money or my poor boy Kane. It was also the last time that my run will not involve me leaving my house and seeing Kane in his little corner, unable to walk, and knowing he can’t go running with ever again. No doubt for the next few weeks my run will begin with a bit of sadness as that realization repeatedly strikes me each time I walk out the door. I am also pretty sure he won’t enjoy it either since he loved our runs so much. Mostly he loved picking fights with the neighborhood dogs along the way. I can say one thing though, when he was running with me the neighborhood dogs didn’t try to sniff at my heels- he took care of that. I will miss his company on my runs. I guess Lucius will have to start running with me, but if Kane sees that he will be REALLY angry.
The results: A little over 2 miles, 208 calories burned, although I ran at a 12 minute/mile pace, but I was running intervals so the pace is deceptive.
