Welcome back. I missed you.

I ran a little race with my friend on Saturday. It felt so good to be outside in the sunshine, moving freely, and just for fun. It reminded me of how much I love running, and why I began to run in the first place.

So this morning, I laced up my shoes and embarked on my first 5-miler of the season.

In other news:
Sorry, Huli. I’m not taking you with me, no matter how cute you are, or how much dog hair you get on my shoes.  I want a workout, but not the kind that involves dragging a 50-lb slug behind me on a leash. No can do.

But I promise I’ll let you lay on those shoes and get in the way of my picture taking when I get back. Because you’re the sweetest. Even if you can’t run.
