Welcome Back!

This is the gang from the hit TV show "Welcome Back Cotter."

Welcome back, running! That's right, boys and girls. I popped out of bed this morning and said to Chasen "Today is the day." I headed out and started with a brisk walk. Then, after being pain free, I decided to JUST DO IT. After 123 days, the spell has been broken. I RAN! I RAN! I RAN! I did three different increments of about a quarter mile each (sans Garmin). Boy did it feel good. Nay, it felt AWESOME! I couldn't be happier. And so far the foot is good. We do have frozen stuff in the apartment freezer, though (for just in case).

Whoo hoo!
