It actually surprised me that I ran more miles this month than last April. It seemed like I missed run after run from being hurt, but I guess since I did a mile here and a mile there, I made up some of it. Plus, last year I was on vacation for the first week in April. I took this week off from running - I think I deserve it, and it gave me a chance to get back into my weight training schedule and to get out on the bike. This coming four weeks is going to be so busy with everything I have to do for work and for scuba, so I needed the break.

What can I say about my running? I am doing very well, and I continue to exceed my expectations -- to my absolute amazement... The races where I show up at the starting line with a true goal are the exception, not the rule, so when I PR, I usually am very surprised. After having some minor setbacks this month, all I can say is that I am truly happy to be running at all, and so lucky to have something that I love.

Next weekend, the Galloway program starts. This will be my fifth year. I've spent the winter running "rogue," meaning not running with my running store. My group has had an excellent off season, and I'm looking forward to running with them again this summer.
