Joggers and Races

“You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.”


Well today I went for a jog to the playground.  I blew off my race this morning because I did not feel like going and it was nice to just wake up when I wanted to and enjoy my morning with Lilly. 


I am not the easiest person but I am realizing these days that I just need to be strong and fight for what I want in life no matter what.  I haven’t been having the best of time at work and in life in general and I want things to turn out great in life for me and for Lilly.  I need to focus on my goals and Lilly and let the rest fall in when it can. 


So today I ran to the playground.  Lilly and I love Mill Run Park and we go there a lot so she was a little bored.  So I jogged her to the other playground.  She was great and had fun…however, this lady tried to take my B.O.B. jogger.  She must have been an idiot because she was older and I can run.  She had her daughter in it and the girl drank all of Lilly’s apple juice and ate her teddy grahams.  She is lucky I am a pretty benevolent person because I could have gone ballistic on her!!!!!!!  So Lilly had to go to the bathroom and there was no bathroom around so leave it to my girl to drop her shorts and go behind the jogger…


What a fun day and I really do hope the rest falls into play.
