Lake WA Blvd walk/jog/walk

Last year around this time I was getting ready to pace my sister at the Seattle Marathon. Even just one month ago I still held out hope that I would be able to do it again but unfortunately this year things are different.

My sister and her husband are spending a few days with us for the holiday and for my father's birthday which is pretty cool. It seems like we don't see Lucca much. This afternoon she wanted to get in a short shakedown run and I impulsively joined her. She was just heading down Lake WA Blvd and back so I figured I could bag running and walk if my knee started to hurt.

Well it didn't hurt. And I actually jogged for about 2.5 miles at a 9:10 pace. And when we did meet her husband on the way back and started walking it kept on not hurting. I was so elated I took them on a detour up some stairs and through a park on the way home. Still no hurting.

That isn't to say I couldn't feel my knee, but I'm positive I did not overdo it today. Never has running at 9:10 felt so good and made me so happy.
