The knees felt all right early Thursday morning so I went out for a short 4 miles. Everything went fine. No pain and there was a lot less traffic about since I headed out at 6:30 am when the sun was rising. Everything was quite serene in fact. Maybe I should wake my lazy butt up earlier for my runs. Eh, we'll see.
Speaking of running, my schedule is getting thrown off a bit right now. The conference has pretty much fried my brain for the week (trying to listen to papers given in five different languages is not good for the mind), but I still have to visit two sites tomorrow and then I have a last minute trip back to England on Sunday for three days to tie up loose ends. Depending on how things go, I may have some news to impart to you all next week. Or not. I have no idea anymore.
Before I sign off, I want to wish Viper and Laura good luck as they're running the Akron marathon tomorrow. Also, I want to throw my support behind all those who are still suffering from taper madness. Although I haven't experienced it myself, I understand craziness fairly well so I hope some sanity and serenity find their way into your lives very soon.
Take care all.
