Running, one year apart
On April 4th of last year, we drove down to the St. Luke’s Outpatient Clinic in Hailey and the doctor sawed my cast off. I had my arm back! I could type again!
A few days later, I started jogging every morning with Elizabeth. We’d leave our apartment and run to the Warm Springs Lodge and back.
I could barely run the 3 mile loop. Maybe part of it was the 5,000’ of elevation, but more likely it was because I was terrible at running.
On 4/20/2019, I recorded a 4 mile run at a 9:57 pace. Slow and painful.
I started to actually enjoy running in Sun Valley. I dreaded getting going, but once we were outside and moving, I loved it. I loved the snow-covered Sawtooths and the cold air. Since we left, one of my process goals has been to run every day.
On 4/20/2020, I recorded a 4 mile run here in SF at a 8:26 pace. Still slow, but getting faster. And unlike last year, I enjoyed it the entire time.
