Tonight I finally got to go for a run after a month of just working. Oh man did it burn at the same time that it felt amazing. Chief seemed to crave it as much as I did. But considering I haven’t even been taking the dogs for a walk I’m sure he’s missed being out and about too. We ran. Pretty hard.
As I was running I was reflecting on the past month of work. I’ve had many ups and a few downs but in general, I’ve had a good month. It’s been a long month yet the time has gone by so fast I can’t believe it’s almost mid August. One of my favorite things has been getting to know some of my supervisors and learning with my mentors on how to handle given situations. I’ve also enjoyed building friendships with a few of my coworkers and getting to know them.
When I got to the halfway point I stopped for a bit to gaze at their field and how it’s slowly being overtaken by pine trees and wild raspberries.
“Ah Chief. Doesn’t it feel good? That burning sensation?” he wagged his tail and then trotted ahead and looked back as if to tell me to hurry up. So I lugged myself forward to head home.
I didn’t know that I would yearn for the burning sensation until I felt it again. And now, I feel invincible again. Tired and ready to sleep 8 days, but yet invincible. And as I enjoy my day off tomorrow, I’ll re-eneegize myself, drink some coffee, and prepare myself to finish this summer strong. Both work-wise and running-wise. Until then, peace. ✌🏻️ #fire🔥 #burning #yearning
