Too much work, no time to walk around looking for good trash to photograph, so here's a rather bland shot of a lost shoe

5k take two, or some thoughts on getting back in shape

As my few regular readers and friends know, Jenna and I started running back in May. After recovering from being ill in late March -- an illness that knocked me on my ass for a month and left me with some hearing loss and a permanent ringing in my right ear -- I needed to focus on getting healthy.

A little over 4 months later and I feel great. I've become totally addicted to running. I've gone from thinking of running for 5 minutes as an impossible task to thinking of running a 5k race as a simple short run. In the process I've lost about 25 pounds, getting back to an ideal/healthy weight and my waist has shrunk by about 4 inches. I'm sleeping better, have gained a little self confidence and the sense of accomplishment is amazing.

I can't say enough about the Couch to 5k training program , I recommend that anyone trying to add something healthy to their lives give it a try.

Today I have two photos, the first is of me crossing the finish line of the Forest Park 5k this past Sunday, and the second is of a truck that I saw today on Houston St.

not much today today, I'm still recovering from yesterday's Forest Park 5k, maybe I'll write more about that tomorrow.
