    Ok Bill -there's a cute lookin' dog staring at you in that picture saying... "c'mon -you know you can do it!!...";)..
    Post some notes in the mileage reporting forum so you can keep a track of progress...

    Glad to see you back, Bill.

    Hang in there. By the time you know it, you'll be strong again.

    94982255-AFB1-4EE9-91C3-E12A53765324.jpeg It's been a super crappy winter for running here! The first part before Christmas had lots of freezing rain turning the town into a virtual skating rink! Almost impossible just to walk, let alone run. February found us in a deep freeze with day time highs being -20C without the wind. The pic was from a few days ago.

    Thanks, unfortunately the dog in the pic no longer walks this earth. He died of cancer awhile back, but I have a new pup ( Australian Cattle Dog) who takes no issue with running!!

    Yes I remember... (hope you didn't mind me 'interpreting' the picture though).
    Guess you'll be raring to go with your new buddy now -just as soon as the temperature permits...:)
