Glory Day

I went for an easy run in the sunshine yesterday to break in my new Hurricanes. It's strange how my right knee reacted. After alternating two pairs of shoes that each had over 250 miles on them, I was now clunking along with new tires that had much more tread and stiffness to them. My right knee noticed and started to twang a little. I also noticed that my left foot tends to twist inwards at the toe after each stride and occasionally nips my right foot as they cross. So now you know why I made it an easy run. I have to get these puppies warmed up and broken in.
Baseball. The West Point boy is home for spring break and we're going out for a family outing. A spring training game sounds good. Options include: Mets @ Tigers, Orioles @ Nationals and Yankees @ Astros. Tough decisions all but I'm guessing the Yankee game is sold out; plus I am a Red Sox fan and would not do well among the Bomber faithful. All that really matters is the weather: today will be 82 and sunny with a slight breeze. Ahhhh. Eat your heart out.
P.S. The red breasted robins are here making their way north. It won't be long now my northern brethren and sistas.

Thank goodness. I wish you could get them to fly a little faster. Watch those new shoes...

Well, tell those damn robins to hurry up. I'm freezing!

And I would have picked the Yankees.

Those robins can't get here fast enough.

And I'd have picked the Mets!
