I started to not even share it. I didn’t feel it worthy enough to even mention. It was certainly not a monumental event, but nonetheless it was an effort. I didn’t even take a picture. I took my camera with me as usual, tucked away in my spibelt, but I never even pulled it out. I hassled for breath somewhat while wrestling with thoughts of allowing myself to get out of shape (in just these past two short weeks) with thoughts of how it’s probably good for me to occasionally “take a break”.
But the more I’ve pondered over those short two miles, I felt more and more compelled to share that small victory with you. You are inasmuch the motivation that rallied me back to that dirt road. You deserve to know what you accomplished. I thought about you during that run. Your comments encouraged me, inspired me and supported me. Thank you for listening.
Will I run again tomorrow. I’m not sure yet. But for now, it’s progress.
