Bad news: it took me eleven days to get to the first run of 2006. Good news: seven miles, 1:03 (9:00/mi), and no pain in my left knee and hip, as was the case during my last run nearly two weeks ago.
After the first three, I bumped into Bill Stephens from the Road Runners, and finished the run with him. The new shoes still work well; no toe problems. Tomorrow’s supposed to be even warmer than today, so I hope to get back out there for four or five miles at an eight minute pace.
