I injured my ankle badly early this summer. Last summer I was training for a marathon. My long runs were up to seventeen miles. This summer I have not run a step. For weeks it was difficult or impossible to walk. In the morning I have an appointment to run at sunrise in the Lower Huron Park. I’m looking forward to getting some cool morning air in my lungs. …OK. Now I’m back from my run. The drive over to the Lower Huron Park was beautiful this morning. A full moon was setting the blue sky in the west. It pulled my praise trigger. I met Jim at his invitation. He often runs with me on his iPod, he said, and wanted to invite me to run with him live. It was different, though, because he is young and fast and I am neither, so he did most of the talking and I added a few breathless grunts here and there. It was great to get out. All is well and I’m back on my way. Thanks, Jim.
