My running is also starting to feel good again although I've never stopped through the difficult times, I kept moving forward.
Today I did the Lightfoot Running Club, Norwalk 7 miler. This may be my 14th year doing this race. Had my peaks, lows, and now rebound years. I love running in this area of Norwalk. Although 99% humidity I felt strong. My lowest point during the race was mile 6, this was my slowest mile.
I believe the best part about this race today was the familiarity and the love of running in this area. Each year I vow to do new races and new towns but there are races you can't can give up because you've done them for so many years you feel such a commitment to be there each and every year. I hope I'm back before another 6 months pass.
