Once upon a time, before my kidney stones, I had decided to take up running.  I had a plan.  I felt motivated.  I was excited…

…and then the stones moved in.  I stopped my routine.  I was in a fair amount of pain and, well, needed to use the bathroom quite a bit (and I was not about to start squatting in the ditch along our country road), so I put my running on the side to pick up again once the stones passed…

…Ah, yes, good intentioned and all, but I never picked it back up.  That bothered me tremendously (especially when I looked in the mirror), but I still never started back up.  Excuses.  Excuses.  There is always one available.

Until today.  Today is hot (especially for May in WI), but Liv was at Grandma’s and Christian was at school, my yardwork was complete, my errand was done, so I laced up my shoes and headed out on the road.  2-miles down — walk/run.  I feel good.  Now, to just stay at it!
