Good Bye Pal

He was 19 years old. For a cat that’s 92 human years. He had late stage renal failure due to cancer. So, today we took him to the Superior Animal Hospital & Boarding Suites and he was put to sleep. We were with him as the medication was administered. He…

Combined Stats

Since my Apple Watch decided to act up today, I ended up with two separate posts. Combined I ran 3.57 miles in 39.58 minutes. Not bad. Hopefully the only reason my watch acted up was because of the new update. Or it could have been my jacket brushing against the…

Do I or Don’t I?

Run. I’m contemplating a run. It’s 6 degrees at the moment. I have the gear to run in this temperature but it’s getting up the motivation to find it. Actually, it’s just the running coat I need to find. I have the other stuff already out.

Resumption of Running

I hit the pavement today. It was nice. No wind, slightly obscured sun without it being grey and overcast. The roads were dry, but the sidewalks had some snow and ice. Thankfully I have new shoes that are designed for muddy trail running. Though not perfect, they did keep me…

Adjustments

1.7 Miles

It’s moving day! Well, that is the moving company is coming to take the big stuff – couches, tables, washer/dryer, etc., etc., etc.. We already moved most of the small stuff. Right now I’m just finishing up my coffee as we wait for the moving truck to arrive.

Blowsery

Blowsery is a word used in an old Pinky & the Brain cartoon. Otherwise it isn’t really a word. Yet, if one steps outside today in the little neighborhood of Smithville, Blowsery is the most appropriate of words. And at the most inappropriate of times since moving must go on!

The Jinx is Dead!

Years and years ago it was a given I could not watch the Vikings on TV. If I did, they always lost. Interestingly enough, when I didn’t watch, for whatever reason, they won. So, I made it a habit of simply not watching them. I stuck by that except on…

Good Morning!

I’m working on my last cup of coffee as well as waiting for the morning to brighten enough to go on a run. It’s 35 degrees out there right now. The wind makes it feel like 25 degrees, but that’s still down right balmy after last week’s morbid temperatures. If…
