Gratitude Day 7

Today was a good day. I got up early and ran. I ran!!! I. Ran. I was so excited. I did day 1, week 1 of couch to 5k. I walked at 3 mph and ran at 5 mph with a burst at 5.5 mph towards the end. It felt okay. No real pain or problems. I was tired later in the day, but that's about it. I have decided to do the couch to 5k as slow as I need to. I'm going to listen to my body and repeat weeks if I need to. I want to build up to running for the rest of my life, so taking it slow it fine with me.

Today I am grateful for my dogs. Do you know how much I love those 3? They absolutely make my day to come home to them. I love them to death. I am grateful for the chance to know them and share my life with them for a while. They make me very happy, I hope I make their life better. I am very grateful for the dogs I have now and every dog I've ever had. Every dog has taught me something and brought something into my life that no human could. I am grateful for my dogs.
