An Almost Perfect Evening

Monday's Workout: 7.2 mile run!

This is the farthest I have run since the middle of February. It's crazy to think that...but it's true!

Since The Boyfriend did his long on his own Sunday night, I was on my own tonight for mine.  I tried unsuccessfully to get someone to run at least part of it with me. In the end though, I was happy to be out there on my own. 

In the locker room before my run I ran into a friend at work I hadn't talked to in many months. She asked some questions that led me to telling her my story. It makes me feel strong and proud to tell my story. Back in February I never thought I'd be able to talk about it without crying, but now I can tell it while smiling the whole time because I know how incredibly happy I am now and I can say with 100% certainty that "everything happens for a reason".

I felt pretty good on my run and for a few miles felt like I was just floating along the sidewalk. I have no misconceptions that I looked like I was floating, but it definitely felt awesome.

This might have been modeled after me
And now I am enjoying an almost perfect evening. Laying in bed, Mac on my lap, book next to me, Olympics on t.v. I think I'm going to go into withdrawal when the Olympics are over. Oh, how I love the summer Olympics. 

I better go and enjoy the rest of my relaxation time, this is rare!
