Lovin' Summer

   I've noticed the pattern of the Sun, lately, it's gradually drifting back to the South and the days are getting shorter. I so love Summertime. I guess all the fond memories I have of the old neighborhood. Man we had some fun!!
  Yet time is a relentless companion! It holds for no one and makes no concessions! I've been adding minutes to my daily runs and as many of you might know I've been on a long road of recovery from my own pride and stupidity, today I found myself the furthest I'd been from the house in quite a while. I even managed a negative split! I really felt good and the heel seems to be on a continued recovery, too.

  So 43 minutes yesterday, 50 minutes today, I'm on track for reaching base camp II! Peace!

So glad you are on the mend!
