No Complaints!!

The weather is fantastic!! 74 degrees, sunny, and a sweet southern breeze. I'm still in the weak grip of a cold but I have been able to keep the training going.
I debated whether to nap or to run today if that tells you how I'm feeling. I opted for the run and after three miles I finally got to feeling decent. It took me a whopping 33 minutes to cover that first three but then I began to feel better and finished up with 8 miles in 1:19.04. So the last five were low nines. I guess I can't complain about being semi-under the weather. I am still putting in the miles and the times aren't to far off from goal.
I passed an elderly Gentleman as I was running. He was on the sidewalk having to use a cane to walk, he had a very laborious gait. He looked at me and I waved, he yelled " I used to be able to do that!" So I guess it could be worse! I can still do that!! I have a lot of respect for folks like him. He had on a hat that signified he was a veteran and he was still out plugging along. He inspired me! Hope the weather holds and the runs are good in your neck of the woods.
Peace!

Nap? Run? The run will win almost every single time. Good comeback run. Nice and easy.

"There will be a day when I will not be able to run, today is not that day!" Someone said that, not sure who.

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
