I’m more the walking type unless I’m playing a sport. Running isn’t something I do much of now. My granddaughter likes it when I run up the street beside the car when she is on her way home and she pretends she’s racing me. I run with my son’s dogs when we watch them.

I probably should run more but I’ve already punished this body a lot so I’ll stick with walking at a good pace. Plus I’m still trying to get in optimum shape by just controlling the intake of food. I’ll do a little running for the sake of running next year when at optimum weight.

But there are times in life when you have to pick up the pace. The last two months of 2023 running what is called for at this time. So I will be huffing and puffing from one task to another and adding more and more as time goes by. It may be one of the busiest pre-holiday periods I can remember.

Lately, it feels the busier I am with other responsibilities, the faster I seem to work here. I’ve seen the downside with some poor editing of myself. I haven’t always used current shots and some have been shorter. I don’t want to give this up because in some ways it’s a positive that keeps me on the right track.

So I raise my game and get the running shoes on and off we go.

On New Year’s Day, I’m going to lay back and only move to bring food to my face and press the remote button.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Tired is not a state of mind, it’s a state of being.
  • There is far too much chocolate in this house.
  • I sense a few days coming up when I think I’ll fire up the grill.
  • Missing some important people in my life.
  • Adding another surgical scar to the list.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
