Taking Time to be with Family

One thing that bear does a lot is to walk nearly everywhere he can.  He walks every night… but I run early every morning (or every other morning) and to walk late and run early I would make myself sick quickly.

But today (comp time day) we needed bread and eggs, so it was a walk to HEB.  I didn’t HAVE to do anything else… I didn’t have to be on the computer, I didn’t have to be on the phone.  I got to take a long walk… it was great.  When I got back, I was tired… but it was nice to be able to walk and talk and ejoy the afternoon…

6 months ago, the walk would have been way harder… I would have been much more sore… I would have been way more tired… I would have wanted to sit down when i got to the store.  Not today.  It felt really good.  Different shoes would have proably made a big difference but I still felt great at the return end.

More?

Yep.  I’ve been being able to go to the field meets to watch (and help) squirrel in her running.  I can tell her what is going to help her to recover.  I can tell her what not to stretch when she is at the end or the beginning becuase I’ve made a lot of the mistakes already that mean I hurt with the stretch (or lack of it)… what makes you feel better (and it doesn’t mean Dr Pepper).

I can spend more time with myself… and feeling good about me… but I can also spend more time with my family.
