It's been a few weeks since I went jogging, my cold and allergies were just awful for a while there, but I feel better now, and needed some stress reduction, so at sunset tonight I loaded up the baby in the stroller, covered the whole load with a mosquito net, and some natural repellant, and took off on foot. Walked faster than usual to the park, but couldn't even manage my minimum 1/2 mile of running. Granted, the stroller makes it more challenging and the hike up the hill is a serious incline even for serious-looking mountain bikers. It was a good workout, and I even managed to fit in a hot bath afterward. I didn't eat well today (as in enough food), and I'm sure that didn't help the endurance. But hey, I went and got my blood flowing, and that counts for a lot!
The sunset was gorgeous tonight, they're all beautiful here, but this was really spectacular, wish I had taken a picture to post...but I didn't want to slow down. Flaming orange rays coming off the horizon, just about every type, color, and size of clouds, the colors all reflecting off the lake, and the muted-deep-colored hills seeming to vibrate with their last warmth of the day...just amazing.
