I try to look forward, to look at the benefits of getting some miles in. That's not easy when I think that I was in marathon shape just a short time ago and now I'm sporting some serious extra holiday baggage. Looking back on that marathon, though, reminds me that all is possible. My two companions--both first-timers--were fun to have on the journey, and they're both stronger having survived the long run.
|Where was Andy? Here's Dillon Dwyer and me at the start of a cool Twin Cities Marathon. Andy Meyer also trained and ran with us, but we couldn't find him at the start!|
I'm confident, though, that I'll get there. I'll be back at it. My little Runkeeper app is a welcome companion in my efforts.
Today was a good day to get going again. Warm, still, sunny. Who could ask for more of South Dakota in mid-January?
