So, a new look and a new blog. Got a new pair of running shoes too. Did a quick 1 mile jaunt around the neighborhood and my feet arenâ€™t aching, so thatâ€™s a start. Hopefully, theyâ€™ll wear in nicely and Iâ€™ll get at least 200 miles out of them before all the cushion is gone. Since I just went and spent a chunk of change on new shoes, this means I have to start a new commitment to working out and weight loss. Iâ€™ve dropped 40 lbs since April, but things have mellowed out in the last couple of months. Things have just crept up to dampen progress; shoes dying, hamstring problems, life in general. Now, Iâ€™ll get a fresh start. That run was nice. It felt good to get out there and push concrete for a while again.
Hamstring still hurts. I guess nothingâ€™s ever completely new again, is it?
