I'm Alive

Today I felt more alive than I have in months.  Running trails with a group of friends will do that to you. At least it does for me.  The struggles I've faced in the past five months with rehabbing my IT band and the boredom I've felt on far to many solo runs was all forgotten in the span of running 6.2 miles of rocks, roots and hills.  Ah, the hills.   I got so caught up in the excitement of it all that I actually allowed myself to run up and down most of them today.  Damn you IT band! I'm not babying you today!  Thanks Team T, Dan, Roz, Bill M., Bill H. and KZ for making this possible. 

A few interesting comments were heard as we previewed the Tuff 10K Trail Race course in Breakheart Reservation.

"Runners will be calling this hill, Dan's Death March."
"It's a little Seven Sisters like."
"Thanks for taking us on a 12 mile run, Dan"

and my favorite of the day,

"This is F&%*ing insane!"  I was told that meant the Sarge approved of the course which means it must have lived up to it's name. 

It was a good day indeed.


  1. I like the tag line on your header image, especially, "...if you can't run fast, run far." Sounds like me. Hope your IT issues clear up. Cheers!

  2. Sounds great. All my runs are solo (unless I'm running with my kids), would love to find a good group.

  3. Looks like you have a good day!..Truly running with companions is amazing...


What's on your mind?
