Summer Agenda

I love lists and I love goals, so when I saw Real Simple’s ‘Best Ways to Enjoy Summer’ ideas, I was all over it. They included such things as best ways to fly paper airplanes and how to cut jeans into shorts (already did!).  All very fun ideas, but not at all the type of list I had in mind…

My Inspired Summer Agenda:

  • Boston trip
  • Go to the Fair (San Diego’s is one of the largest in the country!)
  • Get a nice tan…for once 😀
  • Make pickled watermelon rinds
  • Complete
  • Start a fiction story
  • Run 7 miler
  • Take camera (photo) everywhere
  • Sew a dress
  • Take a train mini-trip
  • 10 Global accounts
  • Wake at 6:30am every morning
  • Start learning Italian
  • Write here 3 times a week (M,W,F)
  • Find all 50 state licenses (I couldn’t resist when finding 11 today…)
  • Successfully make dairy-free fried polenta
  • Get Dazzle site to top of sd wedding videography in Google
  • Go to Angels game
  • Read 20 business books
  • 5k race

What’s on your summer agenda?

Running in Bliss

Monday night was amazing.  After the Bruins game, I wanted to go for a run at the local community college’s track.  I convinced my Mom and dog (Lucy) to join me on the dusk excursion.

We left and got there quickly.  As soon as Lucy jumped out of the car, a woman came up to us.  “Dogs aren’t allowed here.  I’m pretty sure,” she policed and then walked on.  Talk about someone with no life! We decided to walk Lucy on the grassy inside of the track, mainly to avoid the busybody.  I sprinted back and forth with her, while avoiding the rabbits on the western side of the field.

Lucy decided to continue the night with Mom.  I continued on running.  I bolted here and there, attempted cartwheels (to no avail!), did grapevines, high knees, butt kickers and just plain had fun.

It was near dark at this point with little light from the street lamps and the far west, and no one was around. The freeing feeling of pure joy was intoxicating.  I was truly living in the moment.

Running alone at dusk on damp grass is my bliss.  What’s yours?
