Running again!

Something about exclusively eating pizza and Chinese for breakfast, lunch and dinner for two days motivated me to get running today. Funny how that works.

I think it's been a month since I ran, so it was painful. But I pushed myself all the way to the river and back, including a small jaunt along the river on a fantastically secluded path:

Grand total distance? 3.89 miles. Longest I've ever...  well - I didn't run it straight. there was a lot of walking after mile two. And I'm sure I've walked farther at events such as the State Fair. At the very least, it's the longest I've ever gone out "running" and then subsequently traveled on foot. Total time was 40 minutes. It's going to take me a couple more trips out to run straight for 3 miles again. But darn it, I did it on the cruise ship, which was sandwiched by heavy drinking and eating. I can do it!
