I got up this morning and ran five miles. It was the first thin I’ve done for myself in a long time. It felt great. I saw two snapper turtles, a heron, a cardinal, a finch, and a bunny rabbit. At the end of the trail there’s an old railroad bridge, and I climbed out on it and watched the river rush by below me.
When I got back from the run I took my first hot shower in almost a week. I was starting to feel human again.
