Good Thing Come To Those...

...who wait for homegrown tomatoes!
After fueling the soil with plenty of veggie and fruit table scraps, old mulch and worm-infested soil, we put our 'mater plants(4) in this pot just after Mother's Day, and they are lookin' great! The largest fruits are about 2" in diameter so far. Probably late July before the first harvest.

Running-wise, I've had some great weeks, but I have developed Runner's Knee over those weeks. The tendon above the knee cap gets swollen and stiff, and like all injuries, seems to drag on and on. I've also developed some left shoulder pain as well, which has reduced my swimming regimen. So...I'm just trying to ease back into the workout routine, but added more ice and ibuprofin into the mix.

Catch Me Run Fun

It was wet, cold and windy, but where else can you show up dressed in shorts and a dry-cleaning bag and not feel out of place? Lunken Airport for the annual Catch-Me run.
Rain was heavy for the early start, but tapered off once the race began. In fact, after the first mile, I shed my plastic bag and kept up a great pace throughout. Nice speed workout.
Thanks Doug!

COLLLLD January Run

Ouch, it is cold today, but I managed to get my butt out the door and run an easy 5 in the snow. Headwind going out, but nice and warm on the way back.
Mileage these past few months has been meager due to the weather, but I'm cool with that. There's always the pool. :o)
