Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!
The weather was really nice today! A little warm, but sunny and the air felt really nice, especially this morning when I ran!!!
I don’t really remember when I started running, actually. When I was found, you know the story. But at some point my psychologists and social workers told me it’d be a good idea if I exercised. So I started running. It wasn’t easy for a while, because running is hard, especially long distances, but I got used to it. Now I run a couple of miles every morning. It’s not always easy and there are a few days where I’m just too depressed or something, but most days it’s run run run. Every now and then I take Marie with me but truth is she cramps my style. She prefers to stop and smell things and do a doody, but I need to keep going. But she does seem to enjoy it when I do, she just gets easily distracted. She is a dog, I guess.
Liz runs with me sometimes but usually she prefers to do her own exercise. And Beth… well, you couldn’t wake her up early enough. She’s definitely kind of a night owl.
I always feel better after a run though. It wakes me up.
Dave has some other exercise equipment that he uses sometimes but I don’t bother. I don’t need to bulk or tone up or anything, and the running’s enough to make my legs look good!
Jack runs too, but not as much as I do. He’s not really athletic, but he tries to keep in shape. That’s how I met him, remember? In the exercise room in the hotel at Orlando. Well, after he got an eyeful of me in my swimsuit, anyway.
I guess I’m babbling because I don’t have a lot to say. Things are moving along. I practiced drums today. It’s not hard. I’ve already been trained in rhythm for the piano (even if I don’t remember how) so it’s just remembering where all the different clangy and boomy pieces are. It’s kind of fun, I guess. Not something I would have chosen for myself, though. They say drums are like the “engine” for a band… which is funny to me, because classical musicians like me not only don’t need drums, they kind of get in the way. Did you know a piano is a percussion instrument?
Anyway, guess I should go. I’m sleepy.
