It's been a long time since I was able to run with my buds, but today was the first of what I hope is many.
Ken, Bill, Mitchell, Maurice (Ken's standard poodle) and I, started at Ken's loft and ran a little over three miles through the west end, back to downtown, and south to Ken's. It was a real treat for me to look ahead a few yards and see three of my best buds running with me.
I actually ran further than I have recently, since most of my program has been geared to a run/walk situation. I was able to keep up only because they kept the pace slow. Still, it felt pretty good to run a consistent pace.
After our run we chowed down at a place in the north end called Happy Gillis. I had never been there before, but the food was great, so I'll be back.
This was the best start to a Saturday since I can remember!
