New Era

Thursday, June 6, 2013:

Dad died last Tuesday.  I'll sure miss him - he was one of my very best cheerleaders, following us on our trips and always wanting to know how the marathon went.  He loved what we do.  I'll miss calling or emailing him with our results, chatting with him on visits, even doing his taxes.  He was a wonderful Dad and a wonderful person, as sharp as anyone, with lots and lots of friends even at his age.  He leaves quite an empty place.  Go with God, Dad.

Today's run was appropriately dreary, 5.8 miles in 56-degree mist on the paved trails in the park.  I did a walk/run of 30 to 20 triplets, and finished in 59:30, for a pace of 10:20.  It's OK, I felt strong, as I should after taking three days off from running. Good to be back at it.

Whining: The lower right abdomen hurt a little, in the area of last year's hernia surgery.  I sure hope that doesn't get worse.
