I guess I am still in recovery ...

... but it does not feel like it. I am beginning to think I did not put out hard enough in the Georgia Marathon. Yeah, I PRed against grueling conditions but I was hardly sore, played tourist afterwards, came home and went for three runs. So far and it's all been so .... normal. I expected a recovery of consequence for which there has been none.

I behaved myself and ran just three miles last Friday; then six on Sunday and four-plus today with a 1:45 400m lap thrown in on the track just for fun. I want more. I'll go ten this weekend.

Next race is the 19th at 6:45 p.m. A 5K corporate run. I invited a young lady at the district office to be the team captain and she has recruited enough or more runners plus over $500 for the event charity. I am impressed with her motivation. The bad news is that I think I am the designated fasty on the team. We do not expect to win any awards on my credentials but we're out there for fun and fellowship, right? Sure. This time anyway.

You make it seem so easy.
