Sunny Sunday

Quite bright outside right now, but cold as shit - probably won't crack 20 today. Ah, late February in New England. Gotta love it.

Not much going on right now. Achilles was still a bit tight when I woke up this morning, but felt better than the last few days, so I decided to play it smart and give it one more day to get itself back in good working order. Hopefully, I'll be able to test it out with a few easy miles tomorrow. I miss being active and getting out for a breath of fresh air, no matter how cold that air may be. And that pretty much sums up my running - or lack thereof - for the last couple days.

Moving on, or backwards I should say, I covered the high school state track and field meet for work on Friday night. On the whole, it was a slow night for Central Mass. athletes, but luckily the gals from Wachusett Regional gave me something to write about. I'm not sure of the possible copyright violations of the following action, but for your reading pleasure, here's a link my article that ran in yesterday morning's Telegram & Gazette.

I really don't have much else to report. Off to work the desk tonight at 5:30, but not before meeting my good buds Sean and Melissa Kinney for a late lunch at Uno's in Bellingham. I haven't seen the first couple of Stonehill's Class of '04 in a few months so it will be nice to catch up and see how the married life is treating the two of 'em. Coach Skinney's planning on heading to Chi-town the first weekend in April to visit his bro and run the Shamrock Shuffle 8K and I very well may join him if I regain some semblance of forward mobility by then. Hopefully my body cooperates and we can work it out.

And that'll do it for today. Happy Sunday.

Readers of the Telegram & Gazette are lucky to have such a knowledgeable local running writer. Not all that many newspaper subscribers are that fortunate!

I have been paying more attention to the Stonehill runners at our meets recently, and taking more photos of them, because of you.

I hope your Achilles is feeling better soon, I'm glad to hear that you're being smart about it.
