    Good group run this morning. My left foot was concerning me due to some discomfort. I had had a recurring cramp in that foot for several hours that just left it sore. So I ran with the run :15/walk :30 group, which I like a lot better than the :10/:40. I ran this morning with a local "celebrity", my... Read more

    This did not go well. But I did learn something about myself. I made my eggs and coffee, grabbed my banana and sat at the table to eat. Again, no phone, no computer and no tv. I didn't like the eggs. I couldn't just sit there and eat my banana,so I ate it while I walked around the kitchen. Reflect... Read more
