An update in handy bullet form:

  • A ligament (or ligaments) in my left knee is upset with me.  I think I stepped wrong or something the other night and twisted or pulled that area which made the ligament not happy.  I've been resting it for a couple of days.  Tonight it seems better and I may give it a try tomorrow sometime.  It really doesn't feel like a long term injury.  It feels like I strained or pulled something and a little rest should have me back in business real soon.
  • I am a CPA by trade which means this time of year I am really busy at work.  That means less time for running if I want to eat, sleep and/or see my family.  So, I cut my mileage back a bit for the month of March.  Basically I just try to run at a maintenance level for now.  In April I'll pick things back up.
  • We went straight from deep winter to summer.  A couple of weeks ago I was running in snow and single digit wind chills.  This week it's been sunshine and 70 degrees.  Crazy.  Of course, all the snow melted.  Rapidly.  Some of our daffodils and tulips are beginning to sprout.  The canes on the rose bushes are turning green.  I just hope we don't get a hard freeze that kills off all the flowers this spring.
  • The trails are open to me again which means that as soon as the ligament in my knee calms down, I can resume the virtual trail tours.  I have some new to me destinations planned for this year that I'm really looking forward to sharing with you all.
  • Have I mentioned that I really like ice cream?

Hope that the rest cures the ligament issue for you quick. That icecream sundae picture is the devil.
