Feeling much better these days.. I think the junk that was in my lungs last week left around Sunday and I'm able to run without any discomfort again.  My 6 mile run yesterday in sub 40 was proof enough...  Although a somewhat hard effort, there was still more in the tank at the finish of this one. 

Three weeks until registration opens up.

I have the Mini is about 9 weeks, looking to improve on my 1:24 from last year.  As long as I stay healthy and injury free, I think it will happen.

Speaking of injury...  I was talking to someone about my calf strain issues who has had them in the past too  and apparently he says that it may be a calcium deficiency.  He says that once he started taking calcium along with magnesium, his  problems went away without a hint of a twinge.  Something to look into anyway.

Not much to blog about these days...  Running has been hit and miss.  Been sick as a pig the last 3-4 days so have only run once since Sunday.  Using nose spray helps to breathe but running with lungs filled with crud makes it about as hard as running above the treeline at pikes...

I made the commitment to return to Haiti in June this year for the Mission of Hope.  Looking forward to going back!

I've been backing off on the mileage this week.. need some rest. No need to kill myself this early since I have nothing of importance until May.

Finally starting to see some jobs opening up in the marketplace.  I have an interview this afternoon with the City of Fort Wayne as there Director of Purchasing.  Not really sure I want to delve into the political arena or not.  But at this point, it's a job.

Pikes registration information was posted, March 15th is the date.
