I wish my dog behaved off-leash. Sadly, he doesn't behave much on-leash either. But he's fun to run with because I go really, really fast for about a mile at the start. It really gives me that "off like a cannon" at the start of a race. Before long, you'll be wishing that the dog was back because it behaved so well.
I want to run and run and run. But driving to Austin from San Antonio every day for work makes sleep more important. I want to sleep and sleep and sleep. But driving to Austin from San Antonio every day for work makes spending time with my family more important. I want, so very badly, to spend more time with my family. But driving to Austin from San Antonio every day for work makes the paycheck continue arriving in my checking account. It seems that my life is on pause while I endlessly wait for this contracting job to either end or become a permanent position. In the meantime, I will continue to dream about running on roads and trails and even treadmills; and fit it in when everything else allows it to happen. I will spend as much time as I can with my family and devour every morsel that I am able. I will continue to lean on my family to keep me level-headed about the whole darn thing. I will continue to smile when my boys ask if I had a million dollar idea at work today.
