A Golden Day

What an awesome day it was today! Restorative all the way around.

I met my running group to compare medals, talk about our races, go for a 3 mile walk, and then coffee and a bagel. We are planning our next race! I would have never thought! I am not planning another full marathon, let me hasten to add... just a half marathon. Next week we are off altogether. Oh, I am so glad to be a part of that group.

It is so nice to be with such healthy people.

After that, I met a friend from work for a quick hike (yes, a hike) and then we went to one of the best movies I have seen in a long, long time. I would highly recommend it. Although it was very violent, and I usually hate violent movies, it was funny and entertaining and I LOVE Bruce Willis and many others from its all star cast. Red. Great.

I so needed to just be with nice people and do little things like this. I feel human again.

Tomorrow I will decide when I wake up whether I will drive across town to my home group or just go to the close-by meeting. But I will get to a morning meeting.

My back still hurts so bad that at church tonight I decided it must be cancer. My mind really never works right. But I think I must go see my doc next week. This just ain't right. The funny thing? It did not hurt much while I was walking and hiking today... but while I was sitting and kneeling at church, I thought I was going to die. Activity = good. Sedentary = not so good.

Grateful for an Autumn Saturday in Colorado. Life in Sobriety is Good. God has been so very good to me.

Hope your back feels better. Take care of yourself. Beautiful scenery.

We saw "Red" last night, too! I thought the John Malkovitch character was hilarious.
Happy Sunday!

Glad you had some high points today. I might go with my 14yr old to see that Bruce Willis film, it's half term holiday and the film is only a 12a rating over here. Hope your back feels better soon. I will say a prayer for your healing.
