Yesterday I ran the Shamrock Shuffle along with 30,000 other poeple. It was very crowded. At the one and only water stop it wasn't easy to get gatorade or water. The finish was even worse. In spite of this it was good experience. The weather was warm and not too windy. I finished the 5 mile (8K) course in 58:10- that's 8:12 slower than my last 5 miler before the surgery. I hadn't trained at all so under 1 hour is ok for me.
Today I started physical therapy for my right foot. I have tendonatis. The prognosis is good.
