Solo run in the neighborhood (originally had Daisy signed up to run with me but she had to cancel). Had a slight steady pickup throughout the run but mostly even.
I've been hinting around of something big about to happen, which actually is happening. A month ago I reconnected with my girlfriend of just over three years. We had gone our separate ways having long been wanting separate things - and had been fully apart for over three months, and the 8 months before that were somewhat sporadic and rocky. She was patient for very long and wanted a life together but I insisted on less than that due to still being gun shy from divorce, fear of the effect on kids, not being sure, and basically being afraid. Without going into all of the details here, it felt like an awakening, and fortunately since she still had something inside left for me even though I was basically looking like the boyfriend who would never ever fully commit, she also decided to take a chance on me and believe in me. So, last night was meeting with family counselor to help with kid issues (went with myself and two boys, she and I had gone to one earlier to help strategize). It will be a challenge but it's all worth it. It's been an amazing month so far with hopefully bigger and better news to come. But for now, still doing baby steps, although we've done quite a few so far looking back on the past month.
