I ran this morning, wearing my ARMY t-shirt so I could run in honor of our fallen veterans. I thought I might make a blog post about it. Just now I thought I couldn’t, but let’s give it a try.
I knew it was warm. For one reason, I didn’t get out till 7 a.m. However, that meant I had some coffee before running. That sometimes helps. It helped today.
In previous runs to honor fallen soldiers, I ran up to the Veterans Memorial at Herkimer College. I was not up to that today. Still, I thought I should make an extra effort. I decided the hill by Valley Health would suffice. I’m sure a greater effort would have been a greater tribute, but one does what one can.
I actually felt it was a pretty good run. I went for 30 minutes, which was up ten percent from last week (full disclosure: I ran for 30 minutes yesterday). I stopped and petted two nice dogs.
While we’re being honest (referencing that full disclosure in the previous parenthetical comment) it is becoming evening and I have been drinking since before noon. In my defense, I put in great efforts in yard work. I don’t know that I achieved great results, but is that really the important thing?
Is not the important thing that I have made a blog post on the third day of a three day weekend? It has not been a Monstrous Monday and it hasn’t been a Running Commentary post. But it has been a post.
You can judge me if you are so inclined. As always, I try for a better post tomorrow. I hope you are all having a delightful Memorial Day weekend.
