After five excruciatingly long weeks of rest, ice and heat, yesterday I met an old friend who I haven't seen since our high school graduation for a jog along the beach in Alameda. I am pleased to report that my strained achilles tendon (which landed me in bed rest since mid-January) has finally healed. We did a 3 mile out-and-back and *man* it felt grrrrreat to be back! I'm already looking forward to my next buddy run tomorrow morning with a friend from college who I haven't seen (again) since graduation. It's so incredible to be able to get back in touch with these fit friends to gather a little momentum for hoisting this bag of potato chips back on the tri-training horse. As long as I stay healthy for the next month I'll be training for the Oakland Running Festival - a half marathon - which takes place on March 22nd. Woohoo. That's all for now. More later!
