I got up this morning about my normal time of 4:40, but this time I didn't do the normal hitting the computer to clean up my e-mail and read some blogs. Living in the Atlanta area where we are experiencing the shortage of gas, I too am feeling the crunch. I refused to sit for 45 minutes in a line to wait for gas over the weekend. I figured, I am usually up by 5:00 AM, I will just try to find a gas station with gas first thing.
My plan paid off. I got out the door just before 5:00 am and the first place I tried, the gas station closest to home, the one that has been out more than most..... had gas! And not only did they have gas, they had it for less than $4.00. And yes, for all those of you in Atlanta, I pulled right up to one of the empty pumps and filled her up with a smile on my face.
OK, back to the run. I had a bit more time at the gym this morning so even though it was difficult, I pushed past the 2 miles and accomplished my first 3 miler since surgery.
Till next time....

Whoo-hoo! Great job :-) That's gotta feel good. I was wondering how you were doing, since you hadn't posted in awhile. I'm glad to hear the progress is positive! --AlexReplyDelete
Way to go on the distance milestone! It's always good to see progress...I hope the gas shortage in the south gets fixed soon.ReplyDelete

Nice! It looks like you are well on the road to recovery now.ReplyDelete
Great job on the run. Glad to hear you are making it back.ReplyDelete
Thanks all for stopping by. Yea, I have been slacking and the post is overdue. I usually don't let it go over a week. I have been running a couple times a week but am chomping at the bit to go further and more often.ReplyDelete
I had some surgery back in July, and I couldn't run for about 6 weeks. But I am now back on the streets, logging about 5-8 miles a day at dawn. Stick with it. It'll get better.ReplyDelete
Nice one Tim! And great job in finding gas in Atlanta hahaReplyDelete
Great job Tim. Easy does it. You'll be burning up the miles in no time.ReplyDelete
I wish my surgery hadn't taken me out so long.... I am afraid that when I go back to get the pin out that I will be out for a few weeks again.... we will see!
Tim, I keep checking + reading your blog - and great to read that you are running again. Just be careful now, built yourself up gradually and be super smart when you start doing faster work again.ReplyDelete
Keep up the good work.
