Graduation time - come on.....

Well it is official, I are graduMutated. Last night I finished up my physical therapy. It has been a long time since I injured my achilles tendon. In fact it was during the famous 9 on the 9Th race. The total cost of that event was many miles and lots of $$ to get back to normal. Thanks a lot race director Nancy. In all honesty, Nancy is a wonderful person and I would never hold her accountable for my actions.

I am now running further and slower than before. I am focused on this year's races. Other than many 5K's a half marathon, one marathon, one 50K, and who knows beyond that.

Work has kept me extremely busy, and got a new assignment supporting the Police department's computer stuff. "STUFF" is a highly technical term that means stuff. I did learn that they will not allow me to wear shorts to work, when I am there. How dare they tell me not to wear shorts, I have wonderful looking runner legs, I have been told that they are even sexy. I will have to buy more pants, since I have worn shorts all winter.

My commute is taking longer this week; there are road closures near my work. There is some small event, called IRONMAN ARIZONA happening near my work. If you remember, I run their marathon trail during my lunches. I will be avoiding this area Saturday. I do with that all the athletes that are racing this weekend to be safe and earn lots of PR's.

Glad you are on the mend, too bad you didn't volunteer at one of the transition stations for IM. I have done that for IM Ottawa, Canada and it is sooo exciting.

Thanks for saying I am a nice person. :D So does this mean 10k on the 10th is in or out? Am I pushing it? Well, we'd love to have you but we want you to be healthy.

Ah, running slower I can relate. Forward motion is the goal, so keep up the good work. I wish I could wear shorts to work.
