Time does not heal all wounds

A year ago today Simi passed away. They say that time heals all wounds. My wounds are still raw. Every time I think of her, my heart hurts. I don’t want it to stop hurting. I don’t want the memories to fade. I still remember the day we brought her home. She was a tiny little scared puppy. She followed me everywhere when she was a puppy, her adolescence all the way to adulthood. I remember vividly when she was bit by a rattlesnake and we had to rush her to the ER. It was traumatic for her. She came to depend on me. Our bond grew from there and easily lasted her lifetime. It goes on forever…

I don’t believe in life-after-death. I sincerely hope I am wrong and someday we will be together again. My heart is still in a thousand pieces.

For my training today, I took it easy and ran an easy 3+ miles in 30 minutes at The Village. After my long run yesterday, I am tapering down to the New York Marathon. Unfortunately, I may may be allergic to something. I sneezed and sneezed and sneezed today. I suspect dust caused it!
