In other news, my sweet foster pup found a home on Sunday! Jess went to the perfect family and will have a mom, dad, brother, and pet cat. I couldn't have asked for a better place for her! Seeing how excited they were to adopt her made me excited, too, and I didn't even get emotional as I said goodbye to her! Maybe I'm getting better at this foster thing?
|Look at that smile! She knew she was going to find a family :-)|
I also found a group to run with! While I still want to give the running club another shot (summer months are hard to judge since everybody is traveling and off their typical routines), I'm excited that I have another option. This one starts a little later in the morning (win) and the guys I ran with said that the group usually runs at a 9:00-10:00 minute pace. Plus, you can earn store credit with the miles that you log. That's pretty sweet.
|I put my selfie in black and white so that I would look less sweaty and red faced.|
In my defense, it rained the first few miles, so there was no hope for a decent pic.
I know I have a lot to be thankful for and have so many things to make me smile, but sometimes all you need is a good run to help you gain perspective back in your life.
What turns your bad mood around? In addition to running, seeing my pup's happy face is a surefire way to make me smile. The Candy Bar Pie Ben & Jerry's in my freezer hasn't hurt either...
