My First Run in Too Long

Y suggested that I go out for a run today since I have been overstressed about my work as well as the news in the world. It was a terrific suggestion, and I wish that I had prodded myself to do it earlier. I went for a run down Highway 59 and then back through the neighborhoods behind our house. I didn’t run for too long, because I want to ease back into the routine. However, I challenged myself with the uphill portions back home on the route that I decided to take.

Since running in the cool Ohio Spring weather, I went to to the store for eggs and wine, and I returned with those things and a bouquet of red roses with tiny purple flower accents for Y. She is making curry for us tonight, so I thought that flowers were in order!
