Good Run

Saturday, December 04, 2010

We went out in the snow again today. My wife and i have been living in FL for the past ten years, and haven't seen snow for a long time. My daughter was five when we moved away so she barley remembers snow. On a whim i decided to take our Dog, Happy (12 lb Bishon)

When i go running i am usually trying to run faster or longer or brake some other personal record, but today was not one of those day. My wife is not really motivated in the cold i want to go faster to warm up and she wants to go slower. Same with hills, i want to keep a steady pace and plow up them while she tends to get bogged down. Happy was just trotting along happy to be out for the jog, enjoying the smells , and probably wishing i wold go faster.

I guess i was a little inpatient to because i had no knee pain. I have days when i cant break a 15 min mile pace because my knees wont let me but today there was no pain, and i wanted to run. FYI, on the bad days my wife smokes me lol.

so finally as we neared the last mile and the snow was picking up pace, i decided "screw the stop watch". I told myself "Enjoy the moment" and slowed down to have a lovely walk with my Wife Laurie and my Dog Happy, who was now covered in mud.

I think God intentionally messes up my plans sometimes just so i will stop and see what is important in life.

God Bless, and happy sparking

Brent
