  I almost feel guilty about my long delay in writing on my blog.  All 3 of my blog friends have been on the edge of their seat waiting for me to post something.  Relax, I'm blogging at last!
  This afternoon I started my run by walking for about 100 meters up the hill.  I stopped and pet my friend the horse, and then proceeded to run down the trail to meet my sister.  Suddenly I stopped to pee.  I didn't think about anyone being around.  Why would I?  5:30 pm on a warm Thursday evening, lot's of people on their bikes, hikers, runners.  As I knelt down to do my thing, I remember thinking, what a scary sight my white butt would be to anyone coming up behind me.  I laughed to myself.  I pulled up my shorts and stood up quickly and glanced around me and much to my surprise there was a guy walking up the trail in perfect shot of my bare butt just 3 seconds before.  I was mortified!  He never gave me eye contact and didn't say a word.  I was soooo embarrassed.
  I am going back to work after being on medical leave for 4 months with my shoulder injury.  It is going to be hard to be back at work.  I have enjoyed my time off so much.  If I buy a lottery ticket within the next two weeks, AND WIN, then I could avoid going back.  Oh, if only I was rich.......I could get use to not working.  It would not be a problem for me.  I love my job, but I haven't missed it at all.
  I have been slowly trying to get my fitness back.  Stumbling along the dirt trails wishing my legs didn't feel like they weigh 100 pounds each.  I keep telling myself that it is suppose to hurt getting in shape.  The only way to get faster and fitter is to push myself.  Tomorrow I am going to run 16 miles and hopefully, I will have a decent run.  Hopefully, my legs will float and my breathing will be quiet.  I hope I will be smiling!

I keep dreaming about same thing...the problem is, I am too cheap to by lottery ticket! As for peeing, hell, yeah, I say it's his problem, not yours!

I've got used to not working since I retired years ago. Best years of my life since.
Hope you managed to complete that 16 mile run and getting back to full fitness again.
