I'm taking it easy tonight (going to bed in just a couple of minutes; it's only 9 oclock here) and have tried to eat foods today that I know my body can handle. I'm supposed to meet Lora tomorrow morning for a run. Unfortunately, I'm doing it as a squeeze play: We're starting the run at 7:00 and I really need to be back at the hotel, changed into travel clothes, packed, and checked out by nine a.m. I'm meeting my boss for the next several hours afterward before another friend comes to pick me up and take me to the airport.
I went out last night and cheered for all the runners to the Nike RunHit ReMix. About eleven thousand runners strong; it was far too late for me to sign up and besides, I have to take it easy on these knees and legs until I can get back to therapy, so no unscheduled runs. Instead I made up a couple of signs to cheer on the runners with. I stood out on the course where it goes through a pedestrian underpass, with about 400 yards left to go, and cheered on the runners through a megaphone. I like to think I spurred a few people to pick it up at the end. The following pics are not necessarily in order, and I'm too lazy to correct them.
It's been raining here most of today, but I hope it lifts by tomorrow morning. I'd really like a nice six or eight miles. gonna have to toke up on Ibuprofen and caffeine to do it, tho. gotta get an appointment with the sports doc.
