On the road again….

OHHHH, now I understand the joke about why Willie Nelson got hit by a car. Today was my first day back running. I went an incredible 2.5 miles and didn’t stop once. The first day back is always exciting (considering it’s my first official day back running ever). The surprisingly mild northeastern day in January was a bonus.
