Ok -- So I've taken 5 years off from running. It's time to get back in shape and BOY has it taken some time. Doesn't help dropping a railroad tie on your foot ... :-(. This years goal is to run a doubler for my 50th birthday. OUCH!!! Especially since I need to qualify -- so it's off to AZ in January with my fingers crossed that my foot will hold up.
