I have been feeling like Ryan is around me lately more than usual, the whole CD player going on by itself.
Than yesterday I was getting Max out of the car for a run and he wanted the umbrella out of the trunk...so I was like...let me run over to the driver's side and push the button...but the trunk opened by itself, before I made it to the button!
I paused for a moment, and then went on with my run, but couldn't help but feel a strong spirit hovering around me.
Off to run!

Great run today. An amazing 10 mile run after a very encouraging meeting with the Conley Sports Team. Yep, and I pretty much balled my eyes out on the trail today for a few seconds...because it's pretty hard to run and cry at the same time. But today was extremely emotional, in a very positive way. It's awesome to have such a great support group already, and Austin is just growing on me more and more each day:) Maybe it's the cooler weather lately:)
I went through the WWP site again to look at programs and stories, and this one gets to my heart. The smiles on these veteran's faces as they bike from city to city just leaves me speechless. It's so hard to complain about anything, when I can't even know what it takes to have such determination after receiving life altering injuries. Bless these guys!
It will be runningforryan.com
This will become the main source of info. for the fundraiser. It's in the works and should be completed shortly!

My body feels really wierd since last night in a good way...loose and energetic. I've been eating a large salad loaded with a lot of veggies including avacado, and a bit of cheese and fruit and yogurt for snacks and I have been noticing the change of my work outs when I eat well, versus grabbing a crappy snack from 7-11 during the work week. I know it's not rocket science, but it's working. Saw a lady push a dog in a baby stroller today. At first, I thought, seriously? But then, I thought, why not...it was a small dog and probably enjoys the fresh air and couldn't keep up on a run with her. Maybe I will see someone's pet pig in a stroller next?

I was able to fish the phone and keys out, but the phone was instantly dead. Luckily, it dried up by morning and works now:)
Then, I had another little surprise this morning...I was hit with some little bug. But I bought this stuff called, Sinus Buster, which was recommended by my boss. It was $16 for over-the-counter, so I thought, it better work. So far, I like the results. It's all natural and made with Capsaicin Pepper.
So, no run today, but if I can flush this nasty crud out of me, looking forward to run in cooler weather on Friday, as the temp "is suppose to drop into the 70's"
Yesterday I met a great guy who is going to make a website for me to reach a wider donating audience. Thanks, Joey, for taking the time to meet, and volunteer for the challenge.
I had a few days of blah-ness, I won't pretend...maybe it was leading up to getting this bug. But over the weekend, I might have doubted myself a few times. But it will all work out in the end...it has to:)
