Lucky Number Seven
I had a little anxiety about our 7-mile run today. Not sure why. It seemed really long to me — so I had a sorta crappy attitude when we started.

I was right! It was just like every other run, only a little longer. And it was mostly fun. Gorgeous sun. Lots of cute dogs. One foot after the other, over and over again, with a short walk break every three minutes or so. We took the scenic route near I-35 and maybe ran a little extra, but other than that, it was uneventful.
Pretty much the ideal Sunday, right there.
