1/21 -

It has been a fun week of running since I last posted!!

I am really starting to get back into running and I can tell - I have a really good attitude which I'm sure makes my wife and boys happy (not having a grumpy dad!).

Look at the smile on my face in the picture below!

This is just one of a series of pictures. I was sending my wife a picture about every 5 minutes showing her that I was on my way to knock on her window. It had been a few months since I had the privilege to do this due to my time off from the stress fracture.

My wife works at Drake which is only about 2 miles from my work. For the easy 30-40 minute runs, I'll head to Drake, knock on her window, waive, and head back making a big loop. It makes me smile, and makes her smile as well. Sometimes, she'll have a student meeting with her, and they'll ask who/what was that. She simply replies - just my crazy runner husband. One time, she had another co-worker in there, and I knocked, waived, and ran off. After about 5 minutes, her co-worker asked - "Is your husband waiting for me to leave before he comes in?" My wife's simple reply was - "Um no, he just knocks on my window and keeps running....he's kind of strange."

Anyway - have fun with your running!
