How amazing was my day? Pretty amazing. First, I went running on a trail that is around the corner from my house, but I hadn't visited in years. I only saw 5 people in 2 hours. The flowers and the views were gorgeous.
When I got home from my 8+ mile run, I was pooped! I got some food, took a shower, and took a nap. Then I got up and went to see Master Lu to get some acupuncture on my knee. It has been achy for over a month now. It's feeling better after two sessions, but has a ways to go. After today's treatment, it feels a little bruised, but I also got some herbal rub from him that I will start using in the morning. I feel like I'm making progress.
After getting home from acupuncture, I did some weeding in the yard and vacuumed the house a bit. Did some errands close to home. Had a snack. Then it was that time of night when the dogs look at me longingly and ask for a walk. I rallied. Went up to the Avenues Shoreline and it was kind of spitting rain as the sun was going down. We were rewarded: double full rainbow. A mountain biker stopped and took my photo. I couldn't stop taking photos. It was amazing. It was magic.
First this: a beautiful run on single track ~
