Another Day Off

I didn't run on Thursday after class...not a big surprise. My knees have really been bothering me a lot lately. I take the stairs to the 5th floor at work everyday and man oh man I can really tell that my knees are having trouble!

My intention is to run a lot this weekend-I'd really like to do a run on base, although it has been extremely humid and there is definitely some foreboding rain with Ophelia in the area. Maybe we'll just end up working out at the Drill Hall on base.

At my new running friend Sarah's suggestion, I've looked into the Chesapeake Bay Area Runner's Club-they have a lot of races in this area and as I get more advanced in my running I think I definitely want to join or at least participate in some of their sponsored races.

I'm feeling pretty good about running and I know that if I put my mind to this I really can succeed. I look back to this time last year when I first started "running". I did a run/walk program and I could barely last the 30 second interval with the 4 1/2 minutes rest...I've come a long way and there's a lot to go, but I am confident than I can accomplish anything if I put my mind to it, even if my knees threaten to give out on me.

I've always thought of running with the CBRC--let me know if you're interested in joining or just crashing a few of their group runs, and I may, too!

I will definitely let you know if I end up going. Maybe we can meet there and check it out!!
