Back from CA

Monterey was amazing as always.  I feel so at home there.  Can't wait to move.  Went on a short hike with my friend Friday.  I enjoyed it a lot and I know she did too, so we will have to do a much longer one some other day.  She used to do that sort of thing all the time, but you know how life is.  One minute you're hiking and camping - the next you're trapped at a desk.

I didn't take as many pictures as I might normally have.  Enjoying the company too much, but here are a couple.

The race was good, even if I didn't get a medal.  I had fun and will get my medal next year!  I'm determined and it was a very good experience.  Everyone I met was so so very encouraging.  I love race people.  Runners, walkers, volunteers, organizers.  They are almost always so nice and encouraging!  I've met one or two "why are you here kinds, but only a couple.  Everyone else is happy to see someone trying, even if they are not in great shape.  It's a good environment.

Then I cam home and lounged and lounged and lounged and lounged.  For not quite a week.  Last night I was sitting at the computer posting pictures of cats when I  realized I was wearing a shirt that said "You don't have to go fast, you just have to go".  I started feeling bad because I had not been going and had no intention of going.  So I grabbed another couple of layers, some gloves and then I went.  It felt good!  I only did 2 miles at a slow pace and the cold tightened up my muscles (niacin for today's outing) but I went, and I felt good.  Got me back on track to go again. At least for today.  Angie and I are going out later.  Maybe that will get me on track for tomorrow.  One day at a time!
