On The Up Swing

Things have been going well lately. I’ve had a few short runs this week and haven’t noticed any problems with my coughing (which is still lingering but working it’s way out).  I had a doctors appointment yesterday and are going back onto prescription gout medicine.  Trying the “alternative” methods wasn’t working.  It’ll take a few months but should be gout free!    
Lately, the family and I have been out and about with various activities.  Last weekend we went hiking around a local reservoir and this afternoon we’re going to Soldiers Delight, where I ran the "Mama Goes Masters" race.  Also last weekend, Paige ran a 1/2 mile race. One of a series of four kids races she’s signed up  for.  She got distracted and was skipping around at one point.  She came in last place along with another girl, but she didn’t care.  She was having FUN!   The two of us went for a 2 run last night.  We made it in a whooping 18 min mile pace!
Tomorrow I’m planning to get a 5 miler in at the NCR Trail.  Then Monday I’m off to Chicago for a work conference.   I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Don’t forget to sign up for the Runner’s Bug Virtual Non-Race!  And please share it with others!!

Glad you are doing better.

I was totally in a non-race state of mind today when I ran my easy solo 10K. I can't wait to run your non-race. :-)
