Let's begin the running

It's been a while since I've been running. I ran a little bit this spring and a little bit this summer, but now that school is about to start it's time to get on schedule. Thanks to Beth, I have a schedule with a goal. 5K by Thanksgiving; Turkey Trot here I come.

So today I woke up and got dressed in running clothes, shoes that rarely have been used since that day last summer when I fell and started the huge ankle mess. Zelda got ready too, harness and leash, and she was ready to go. We begin our schedule, walk .25 mile, run .25 mile, walk .25 mile, run .25 mile, then walk. We did stop after running and played on the playground at the local elementary school. Zelda enjoys jumping over the balance beam and climbing on the playground equipment. Then we finished by walking home. We only encountered two squirrels on the walk home from the playground, but enough to get Zelda super excited.

So a totally of .5 miles of running!  It's a start.
