17 weeks and my birthday

I came into existence exactly 30 years ago today.

I told myself I would enter this new decade running. That I would jog on my birthday. Rain or shine. Limp or no limp. Pain or no pain. And that's exactly what I did.

I'm sure we looked pathetic. The movement of running was there but it was the speed of a normal person walking. The crows were laughing. It started drizzling. But we persisted for a good 1.6 kms.

Then, the thighs started shaking and the rain came down harder. Time to call it a day.

I actually felt pretty good after the "run". No swelling, no pain.

We might try again real soon.


  1. Grats on running again! and Happy Birthday!

  2. Thanks!

    I am going to try running again this weekend. See if it gets easier... and faster!
