Second run with Brooks Ravenna

Saturday, September 20, 2014

The second run went really good. No sore ankle. Four miles instead of 5 because of time. I enjoyed the first chiropractic visit with the new chiropractor. My rib is better today.

So why am I up????? I don't know. I will have time to sleep on the ride to Tuscaloosa for the football game. Headed for a 2:30 game. We are planning to run and then leave for the game. Watching TV right now and checking in!

have a great day everyone.

Today I run :)

Friday, September 19, 2014

I got new shoes last week before we had to deal with so much loss and have used them for one run. New shoes new biomechanics. So the jury is out on if they are great. When I put them on I didn't want to take them off. When I ran my left anckel felt it. Today will be test run two at 5 miles.

I did not use my new shoes on the cold water mountain trail run as I didn't want to risk mud and having trouble returning them if so. It was my first trail run and I enjoyed it. I learned some things. Pick your feet up because there ARE ROCKS EVERYWHER! I also learned don't wear your ear buds and listen to music (I didn't as the coordinator discouraged this). It takes concentration to watch foot placement on uneven trails with so many rocks and angles. I also learned it is much cooler despite the sweat under the trees :). That is not to say it was not hot but it was still cooler than the sun beating down on you

The third in our group was also a newbie to the trail. It was fun even if we look a little worn out! So on to the next run and a football game this weekend.

P.S. I see a new chiropractor today, my old one retired and moved. Missing him already. Hope this new guy is as helpful to me as John has been.

    Sounds like fun on the trail run. Our running store experts say give the shoes 3 or 4 runs to decide unless they really hurt. Good luck on the 5 miles! I have 8 tomorrow.

It's Thursday

Thursday, September 18, 2014

It's the day of the long day. It went fine. I did get my 10,000 steps in,unlike yesterday that only achieved 3,000 steps. My rib hurts where I think I have a rib out of place. I see a new chiropractor tomorrow as mine is retiring. Hopefully he will straighten my spine back out :).

Today was not a bad day despite the length of it. I hope you all had a great day!

funeral today

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

My church family says good bye to Chris today at a service that's just a little bit different. He wanted a celebration of praise and worship music and that's what we will do. I made arrangements to leave work and 12 pm and will be back by 3 pm for evenings sessions. Lunch on the road so I am packing a sandwich I can eat while driving with a snack on the way back to work before 3 pm. After work is the visitation for EMMA at her church in Munford Alabama. What a week. It has reminded me to Love completely those who I value as tomorrow is not promised. This has been my philosophy but life event reinforces that belief. The car accident that could have taken my life in 2004 and my near death in 2013 from the liver biopsy bleed.

God is good all the time!

I hope God is in your life today. I know I could not deal with out God in my life and at times carrying me!

    Death does have a way of appreciating life more. I try to keep that thought every day and to let my family know how much I love them. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  God IS GOOD all the time! Praying for your day, it sounds like it will be a challenging, yet good one. Precious is the death of the saints. We will miss our loved ones, but there is great comfort when a believer dies knowing they are in heaven!

Sad day yesterday

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Chris passed around 3 am and early in the afternoon Emma passed away. She is a local 5 year old that lost a 2 year battle with a brain tumor and also earned her angle wings. Both battling cancer. My Profile picture for the week is in there honor.

I will attend one funeral on Wednesday and don't know about visitation for EMMA it will likely be very long lines.

I did get in a 5 mile run in my new shoes yesterday to combat stress (more to come on this) and still have a picture from my first trail run Sunday afternoon (coldwater mountain) but just not having time to celebrate it right now. It's worthy so later in the week.

    I really HATE cancer. So much bad news the last week or two. My prayers for both families.
