Tonight I went for a run to try it out and after a short distance, like 200 meters, I told John to keep running without me. I was turning back. While turning back towards the house, I thought I didn't get it a chance to warm up and turned back around. I wondered if I was doing more damage staying on it. I wondered if I could run 13.1 miles on it at the Tucson Half Marathon this Sunday. And then at 2 miles, the pain went away. It was like it never existed.
So I ran 3.5 miles and am tickled pink. Tomorrow morning I may be singing a different song but for now, I'm a happy camper.
