There's a nice little path down by the railroad track that we've been running on this week. Sadie, as you can see from the photo, is very excited to be back on a running routine.
My knee is feeling decent. Eighteen pain-free miles this week. It still feels weak, but with each run it's feeling better and I'm feeling more confident. Sadie is acting like she's okay with these three and four mile runs by the railroad track, but I can tell she'd much rather be on the trails. I'm hoping by April that the trails on Moscow Mt. will be melted enough to run.
The Spokane River 50 km trail run is in late April and I'd like to be ready for it, but I realize that it might be a stretch to expect that I'll be completely ready by then. My main goal for this season is to be injury-free for the Iceland ultra and White River 50 in July. Any race I can do before then will be a nice bonus.
I'm excited to be running again. This might be another fun year.
