Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

We saw lots of wildlife along the way - deer, skunk, rabbits, birds, squirrel (with no tail), ground hog and on the way back, I stepped OVER a snake that was still very much alive.

Today was my longest run so far...
