My back is killing me! How is it that a person who can run 8 miles (without any pain) on Saturday can be annihilated by pulling weeds on Monday? I do have to say that I have arthritis in my spine. I also had 2 cervical disks removed, 3 vertebrae fused with bone grafts and titanium rods inserted - back in 1999. I guess I ought to just be grateful I can do anything at all!
This morning, I headed out for my run. My garmin was completely dead. I thought it was charging on its little charger thing, but it wasn't. That thing is so flimsy!
I also forgot my cell phone - which I never do. And when I saw a bunch of angry looking dogs, I realized that I forgot my pepper spray. I have never sprayed any creature great or small, but I feel better when I know I can if I need to. I also forgot to have gum in my mouth, or a bottle of water to drink. What the heck was I thinking? Oh well, it was a nice run never the less. Approximately 3 miles, in approximately I don't know how many minutes.
