A Mile!

Ok, so I'm not officially done with all school related work and probably should be spending my time on finishing the semester. However, I came home from work tonight and immediately started writing. Needless to say, around 9:30 I really needed a break so I went to the gym. It has been 48 days since my surgery and I ran a mile! I wasn't supposed to be able to run for two months after the operation but my toe has been feeling really good and I haven't had pain for about two weeks so I thought I'd try... It felt so good to run again and, although it's not 13.1 miles, it's definitely a good start on the road to recovery. I hope to be running 5k races this summer, the first one possibly in June the saturday before Father's Day (if they didn't reschedule it again this year). Anyway, I'm very, very excited to have my stress reliever back!

Yay for you!!!
I'm also interested in doing some 5Ks this summer. I'm a slow runner, but if you need a companion, count me in!
