Here we go again

After years and years (literally) I'm running again.  Well, I'm walking a lot and running less but it feels wonderful.  The runners high is tempting me to run faster and farther and longer.  Let's see if my body can keep up with the need.

It's almost Spring on the calendar which is my favorite time of year to run outside.  Today I felt the robins were encouraging me by flying low in front of me as if to say 'Come on.  You can do it'.  

My New Balance shoes feel great and seem to have enough cushion at least for now.  My bum knee aches a little after each effort but I'm fine with it.  I don't expect to cover the amount of ground I used to and if my knee holds out for a short run several times a week I'll be content.  

Running Day 2.  I'll post again on Thursday.
