Running was once one of my passions and I thought for years that because I was so severely visually impaired now I would never run again. But I learned that it was possible with a running partner and a safe location so in January I put it on my Bucket List.
Then in April I shared with my 2nd cousin's wife (a runner) about my running history and she offered to take me running after she finished the May half marathon she was training for.
Finally last weekend I shopped for running shoes.
Today Mary took me out to the west Longview dike to run.
Well, run-walk. And it might have been first cousin if not sibling to jogging. I could not sustain the sprints past 30 seconds. Which is just a guess. I just know they were short. 50-70 paces maybe. But several of them over the nearly mile long stretch.
