It's been three weeks since I ran. No excuses. I just haven't been doing it. Today I went to Betzwood to see who would show up for an informal USAFit/Philly spring run. Altogether there were 5 of us. We chatted for a bit and then started out. I assumed I'd be plodding along alone as one of our group was walking and the other three are typically much faster than I. As it turned out the three other runners were not in any hurry and decided to keep pace with me. That was very kind of them for sure. I had an absolutely wonderful time. Three miles went by before I even realized it. On the return trip we went a route I had never done completely before. It was really nice and I look forward to adding it to the USAFit/Philly routes this year.
The only downer was my knee. The same one that I fell on (hard) walking around Quebec last weekend. I'm not sure if there is relation but after about 5 miles it hurt a lot .. a shooting pain. If I walked it would subside but start up again as soon as the pounding of running started again. I'll have to be careful with it and test it out later in the week.
