Don't think I am a liar when you read this, because it will contradict what I said in my last post about being stuck inside.
I wrote that post on Saturday morning. Saturday night it rained, hard, and a cold front blew it. I checked the pollen report, it was very low. I couldn't resist. Sunday afternoon I went outside, and loved it, almost.
I wanted to go for a long walk with my dog yesterday, so I drove 1.5 miles to a neighborhood down the road. There is a sidewalk that stretches exactly one mile in front of our place, but it is so boring to walk. I had to drive to this neighborhood because the road to get there has no side walk or shoulder and it pretty busy. It is fine for me when I run on my own, but with a dog it can be pretty dangerous.
We get there, and I walk our dog for about an hour. I am feeling good, cherishing my time outside, so I decide to run. I stop by the car, drop off my sweatshirt and gloves, and hit the road. It was a great run. It felt awesome to be running allergy free.
When I run, I carry a small runners belt around my waist and I almost always have my keys, cell phone, and Ipod in there. At some point in the run, I opened it up, took my Ipod out,and kept running. The last 1/2 mile I kicked it in gear, and ran a great finish to my car. AWESOME!!! As I reached in my belt, I felt my phone, but no key. Apparently, at some point when I was messing with my Ipod, my key fell out, yet I failed to notice.
My first response was to remain calm, back track, and start praying.
