Running Towards “Normal”

Sally saw a post last week  and the photos alone gave her an idea.  So she gave me my very own photo challenge.  She suggested I bring along my camera on my first run after this last surgery.  She thought maybe I could document my run as I “get back to normal.” I love that she quickly added. “Ha.  Like normal is a thing.”

I agreed it would be a fun post, and so after lacing up my running shoes, I snapped a photo on the brick stairs at my front door, and I continued to snap away as we ran along the Potomac.

As I haven’t been on a run at all in six weeks, and I was only running half heartedly at best before that, I welcomed any stop to take photos.  So did this little lady, who was eager to pop out of the stroller at any opportunity.
