It’s been at least a year since Marilyn and I have been for a run and I have the belly to prove it.
My son Darren and his wife Sherry run a bit and have been raving about their new Nike Free running shoes. I’ve been thinking for months I need to do something and maybe these new shoes would be the ticket to get me back at it. So a couple of weeks ago, in a true reversal of roles, Darren took me out to help me buy me a new pair of shoes.
So if I have new shoes, then it’s only fair that Marilyn has new shoes. Yesterday morning, both proudly wearing our new skins, Mar & I headed out on a sort of run around the park. It felt good, we both enjoyed it and for our first trip out in over a year, we both did pretty good. Now we just have to get in the habit of doing it again and again.
