Sunshine Run!

It wan't long.  It wasn't fast.  Yet it was a run.  I woke up this morning planning to get on the treadmill.  But the sun was shining.  How could I even consider the dreadmill when there was sunshine?  Off we (Indiana Jones & I) went to Summerlake Park.  The park has a path that can be made a figure 8 for 1 mile.  The thought was that I would never be too far from the car if I ran into trouble.  The goal was for up to 4 miles, but at least 2.  The first 2 went great, but about a third of the way into the 3 mile my knee hurt.  Definitely the outside leading me to think my ITB.  Stretching did not improve the situation so I decided enough was enough.  Hey, it was 2.5 miles.  I felt great.  Indy loved every minute of it.  Life was good!

I did wear a buff covering my nose and mouth.  The hope is that the warmer air will keep me from coughing too bad the rest of the day.  We shall see...

The road to rebuilding looks good! Hope the knee was pampered tonight with a foam roller and ice.
