Maybe two is better than one

I am slowly recovering from my jet lag. Countless hours of travel, 60 degree temp difference, and an 8 hour time change really takes it's toll on a person.
This afternoon I ran 2.1 miles with Bea. Slow. I feel like I'm starting from square one since I sorta am. We're talking like 10 minute pace here. 2 runs, both pain free, going to see Pete tomorrow.
Reading everyone officially starting training for Boston today has given me some anxiety. I have no base. I ran 37 miles in Oct. I ran 2 in november. These numbers for 2 months are usually what I do in what week.
Of course there's that part of my brain that is saying, come on, get over it. There's plenty of time before Boston and you'll bounce back quickly if you run smart and stay pain free. And of course there's the fear that I'm going to get hurt again.
Oh well. Just need to get back on the horse. Slowly. I believe the next several weeks I will be running alone or with Bea.

In other news, my pictures from Tanzania are up here

I have faith that the miles you've been running for all those months previously have not left the building. It'll take some catchup but it's not going to be like starting from zero, no way. Just remain healthy (that must be scary on every run right now, wondering if it's going to show up) and have fun getting your fitness back. Amazing photos.

I just looked at all 72 photos and all I can say is WOW. I also really had to laugh at "tumble weave"! Your fitness might be down a bit, but by the looks on the faces of the people you've helped, I would say it doesn't matter much. You'll get back, just be patient!
