A Return

Recommended Posts

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 :wink: )

Another milestone back to "normalcy" accomplished.

The most gratifying part: My wife informed me that she is determined to join me, next year!!

Looking good, glad you are getting back in the swing, really great that Mary now has a goal too. Nothing like a little in marriage competition to speed the healing. You go big guy.

Good job in getting back in the game. life is to short, so grab it by the nether region and go with it. Next year, make a statement and wear a kilt over some black long johns or something.

We have a snowshoe 5k out here I'm contemplating doing kilted this winter. Think the wool wallace is a good choice given the sub zero temps most winters here?

After taking a month off, for no apparent/good reason, I shall now endeavor to regain my running skills.
Should I fail to reacquire said skills, I will then seek, at minimum, to keep my butt moving at a pace greater than a common 3-toed sloth.

You may wish to avert your eyes; This might not be pretty.

I'am sure that you will be able to regain the running skills that you once had just keep in mind your'e goal and stick to it. Don't you need snow shoes out there at this point in time.
