OK, I have no excuse for why I stopped running, this spring. None. Zilch. After putting on a few pounds, in the interim, I have decided that I do not enjoy being old, fat, and ugly. So, I shall endeavor to reduce that to just old & ugly. Began my return to my running regime, this week. Return to your previous activities... that is all.
Ran my 1st post-incident competitive race Thursday, in the local Turkey Trot 5k. (that's me, in red #996) (No, I wasn't kilted, for this one) Dang little ankle biter, immediately in front of me, nearly tripped me before my race began - but that's a rant for another time. I finished well within the timeframe I hoped for; only slightly off from my last year pace. Out of approx. 500 entrants I finished mid-pack overall, and mid-pack for my age group. Met up with some schoolmates I haven't seen, for ages... reminisced a bit. (my ego received a boost, when my time was better than any of theirs ) Another milestone back to "normalcy" accomplished. The most gratifying part: My wife informed me that she is determined to join me, next year!!
