Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep running. I was recently diagnosed with Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, so my new goal is to not have any seizures, and keep running. Since my last seizure in Jan 2018 I haven't been able to run more than 6 miles at once. Hoping the mileage can come back, but future races are out as I don't know what each day will bring. But I'm not dead and don't have a terminal disease, and for that I count my blessings.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Not get super fat, and run another marathon or ultra sometime soon.

Personal:

I let Hazel drag me this morning for 5 miles. It went pretty well, and she learned a lot since the run last week; she stayed on the side of the road (although she went after a car that drove past), and she (mostly) paid attention to my "uh uh" or tongue clicks or "Hazel" calls or leash pulls. The harness is definitely much better than the neck collar, but I need to buy a waist leash so she doesn't pull my right arm out of my socket. It was nice to go 5 miles for the first time in a while, but the left calf niggle came back up as I forgot to wear compression sleeves/socks and I forgot to warm up with concentric heel drops before running. I need to do that.
