Celebrating the little things

This ITB injury has re-taught me how important it is to appreciate everything there is to appreciate about running. While I have a long way to go, I've come so far. And every time something happens that hasn't happened in a while -- whether it's mileage or a certain speed or a certain course -- I'm going to take time to celebrate.

Tonight is one of those nights -- I've ran 4 miles twice this week. It sounds so simple, but the last time I ran 4 miles at least twice in one week was Oct. 18-24, the week after I first started having ITB issues.

Things are shaping up nicely this month as I continue to focus on rebuilding a base and running with no pain. I'm on pace for a little more than 60 miles. I certainly can't complain about that.
