Another great day

I had a really good day today helping my son, Anthony, install outdoor clear plastic blinds to his patio. I am tired and worn out but glad of the rare opportunity to spend the day with Anthony.

Out of Touch

Wow! I just can't believe how out of touch I have become.

Yes, I am still running, but only just. I am having a lot of trouble with my feet. So much so that the pain has really taken away my joy of running. This year I have run the Canberra and Gold Coast marathons and the Ipswich Park 2 Park Half Marathon. All of them in considerable pain. I still meet my friends at Park Road in Brisbane on Sunday mornings and run about 15 Ks but have not been running through the week.

I am hoping that I will be able spend the time and money to get my feet sorted out. At 60 years of age, I think I have a lot of running left in me yet. I long to be able to enjoy my running again.
