Yesterday, I really went swimming. I mean swimming for the first time all summer since I hurt my spine in early June. I'm slowing adding back all my favorite sports and I'm so appreciative of each one.

I walked last week. Walked without my tailbone hurting. Walked almost as far as my old daily walk.

I ran a tiny bit the other day. Only about 50 feet, but this was incredible considering I couldn't even walk three weeks ago.

And yesterday I swam and it didn't hurt and I couldn't believe how great it felt.

I'm marveling at the whole idea of healing. Pretty incredible when you think about it. That your body has the intelligence to heal ... really remarkable. Thank God for it.
