The legs are getting weary

54 years of standing up and 15 years of pounding the trails – the muscles are getting a bit stiff. The left hip is the main challenge.

Usually yoga, stretches and hot tub gives a lot of relief – but did I mention that I have lost some of the discipline in that? Need to get back on the horse again… of course, the left hip permitting 🙂

Greg Jones!!

Went for a run in the morning at my usual trail. Since it was morning, there was not too many people out there. I was putting in my run at my pace, when I thought I saw somebody I knew!

Met Greg after a long time. In fact, the last time I met him might have been in a different trail when he and his wife was finishing up a run and I was starting my own. Greg and I used work together a couple of jobs back and is one of the coolest dude around.

Met his dog – I think Bodie is his name. You can see that “you are getting me late” look on his face. Apparently he goes for 15 mile runs at whatever pace you want him to!

“Greg, you were off the trails with that injury, right?”
“Yes, I am starting to recover now.”
“How many miles are you putting these days?”
“About 50 miles – “
“Sounds about right as you recover”, I said assuming he was giving me his monthly number.
“ – a week”!

The man and his dog are crazy. We agreed to go out on our motorcycles one of these days.
