This day was amazing. We spent the day doing our usual Saturday stuff and decided going to church in the afternoon would be a good idea.
But before we left for the service, out of the blue, I strapped on my tennis shoes and my headphones and went for a run. I haven’t hit the pavements for quite a while. In fact, it was before we went to Colorado. But while we were there, my friend Dan taught me about the Zen of running.
So, I decided to give it a try. I didn’t break any land-speed-records but I did run 3.58 miles on one of the hottest days of the summer. It felt great!
After a cool shower, we loaded the car and made our way to church where, as usual, we were touched by the content, moved by the music and challenged by the message.
Now that we are empty-nesting, we don’t have any more obligations at home so we went from church to the movie theater where we watched “The Butler”. WOW. I’ll say it again, WOW! This movie is so deep with talent and the story line is so rich. Think, FOREST GUMP meets THE HELP…only better on both counts.
It was a great day. I ate well (not meaning that I stuffed myself but that I made good choices) and increasing my Niacin and Fish Oil. Combine that with my running and I’ll have my cholesterol under control within a week or two!
