Dusting off the Running Gear

Yesterday I made a big forward step in my physical goals. I registered to run in the Provo City Pioneer Day 5K race. It has been a long time since I did any consistent running. I used to joke that I had put in 7 good years of exercise during Jr High & high school and that earned me 7 years of good health without any exercise at all. Since I graduated in May of 2001 my 7 free years of health are over and it is now time I begin looking out for number one again so that I can in turn be a greater steward over my family, work, callings, etc.
This morning was my first run and it was really mean. I wasn't sure if I should take my dog with me or not concerned she might not be able to keep up but she really embarrassed me. I'm glad to know however that she will be able to go run with me since I like the company and she needs the exercise.
The picture is of a painting that my mom gave me several years ago.

    My brother almost died the first time he started to get back into running. Good luck with it.
