    It was a little breezy this afternoon, but I still enjoyed the run.

  3. RUN
    good 3 mi

    I felt a bit less clumsy on this run. Hopefully it won't take my muscles long to remember how to run without making me look like a zombie :-)

  4. RUN
    good 3 mi

    I haven't run for five months so I'm starting over again. It felt good, if a bit awkward, to be running again. Now to get myself back into a groove.

  5. RUN
    good Long Run Part 2 15 mi

    I ran in the hills and heat with Maggie and Tim. I was looking for 20 miles today, but the heat and the miles from the week reduced me to walking more than running the last few miles ( I logged 67... read more

    good Long Run Part 1 12 mi

    It sure was a nice morning for a run. The wind kept me cool when I ran into it and pushed me along when I ran with it. I kept this run a little shorter so I have a little something left in my legs ... read more

      Thanks for the encouragement everyone! I wasn't complaining about the run, although after rereading my post it sure sounds that way. I'll take an average ho-hum run any day! Have a great weekend!!!

    A very (ptoo) nice evening for a (ptoo) run, but there wasn't enough (ptoo) breeze to keep the gnats from (ptoo) flying into my mouth :-)

  9. RUN
    good Recovery Run 4 mi
