As usual, a little faster than I wanted to go on my recovery run - but I sped it up a little since I was on the treadmill yet again this morning due to 1" of sleet on the ground and wind chill temps at about 3 degrees.  I had decided I would brave the temps, but the ground cover overnight made me choose other wise.

My knee felt pretty great until I had to restart the treadmill after 7 miles.  Stopping for some reason really seems to bother it.   I really have trouble, after stopping, loosening it back up.

Today's my birthday and my only wish today, as well as everyday, is a better life for my son and grandson.  I'm 42, creeping up on 45, which is creeping up on 50!!!  Oh well, I feel better than ever and still have a lot of running left in me.
