Howe Street stairs | Fleet Feet run | walk home from bus stop

I did my first group run in 4.5 months today! And it was pain-free. What a relief.

In the morning I met Jim Kodjababian at Howe Street for our usual stair workout. We only have three weeks left after this day so shit is getting pretty serious (read: hard!) and it's so nice to have company for these sessions.

I could feel my legs a bit from skiing yesterday but they weren't toast, just a little more tired than if I had rested. That's okay.

After work I headed up to Fleet Feet Sports and joined the regular Tuesday night run. There was a super turnout! I saw Andy Lin, Joe Creighton and Julie Cassata; good times. I started pretty mellow and just tried to maintain my pace. On Interlaken I had to hit the trees to piss and when I got back on the road this man and woman were just ahead of me so I tried to hang. Their pace was perfect in that it was about as fast as I could go without blowing up. I managed to close the gap ever so slowly on the climb and then hung on back to the store.

Man it feels good to run again.

This is what happens when you forget to switch your GPS from skiing mode to running mode... Alpine Skiing mode only wants to record the DESCENTS, and of course here the ascents are the hard part.
