We're making progress!!

Rex was finally able to come out for a run today. It's a little cold outside, but very damp so the weather isn't as bad as it could be. I find that dry air irritates the lungs more than damp air. He's still coughing, but he's able to run farther and more consistently. His form is getting a lot better, and he's really stayed away from negative attitudes during the runs. This makes my life a little easier, and it's easier to show him his progress. He said he also feels better this time around than before, which to me is the most important part.

I finally got us officially registered for the Warrior Dash. It looks like the waves filled up super fast so they added a couple of earlier waves. We lucked out and got 11:30 am!! The end of May is usually beginning to get pretty warm in Georgia, so the earlier the better. This is by far the most expensive race I have ever signed up for, but I think it will be worth it. So many of our friends are participating, and we're all working together to get in shape for this. Studies have shown that the healthier your friends are the more likely you are to stay healthy yourself. By making this a group effort we're not only growing closer as friends but extending and enhancing our lives as well. Gotta love that!

Thanks!!! Writing this blog has been fun, even when I can't keep up with the running very well.
