Long time, no post

I just noticed that it's been a while since I've posted. I'm such a bad blogger.

Let's see, what have I been up to since my last post. Camping in Copper Harbor and the Thimbleberry Jam Fest, went to JP and Danielle's wedding, the annual Tubing Extravaganza on the Otter River and oh yeah, running. Lots of it. It's a good thing I like running because it seems like that's all I'm doing.

Running: I've been dealing with some nagging aches and pains but nothing major. They seem to switch back and forth from the area around my left knee area (not the knee itself) to my right Achilles. I've started swapping out a day of running with riding on the bike so I'm now running three times\week rather than four. My PT says it'll help me in the long run with injuries. My longest run to date as been 6-miles. My time was around 1:14, which included two stops up the Festival Foods hill to get my heart rate back down to a reasonable pace, and another to chat with some women who told me that she wished she had my energy (ha). I also added another piece of equipment to my arsenal. A foam roller. Using it hurts like crazy, but it gets the knots out. Oh, and I spent $13 on some fancy Smartwool socks. I used them yesterday for my 6-miler and they felt great.

Saturday I went to cheer on James in the Copperman Triathlon in Copper Harbor. James picked me up at 5:30-ish AM. Josh and his dad showed up a few hours later, here's Josh's photos. After celebratory beers and lunch at Zik's, we hiked out to Hunter's Point and headed home.

Well, this blog is now up-to-date. Until next month.....
