Well we finally got our reward for all the rainy runs the last week and all spring.  Today was an absolutely gorgeous near-perfect running May morning.  Clear skies, mild winds and amazing scenery with all the green and snow-capped mountains.  

Today was Kim's WannaRunna5K finale as her little band of formerly non-runners toed the starting line and finished their first official 5K. I helped Kim set up a bit then did my long run while she shepherded  her ladies.  Sounds like they did super and kudos to Kim and all of them for gettin' er done. 

Ran with the SF group but mostly Hal.  We got ambitious and ran up Harry's for the 1st time this year. Then Hal kicked my fanny on the way back to Osbournes.  I'm not quite where I'd like to be with the cardio but I'm getting better each week and enjoying the journey and not dealing with any injuries.

Nice run. Good to give back to the running community. Glad to hear you are recovering well and getting yourself back on the path to where you want to be with your running.
