IMG_20140107_190105i started off 2014 with a sore knee and a bad back. the knee: a little sore from pushing myself during a run about a week before. the back: tweaked while moving some large/heavy items. not exactly how i imagined my 2014 starting. i actually had a tens unit hooked up to my lower back the morning of january 1st. but after a little rest and some time off, last night seemed perfect for my first run of 2014.

it kind of sucks to run in the dark, but by the time i get home from work…well, it’s dark! as soon as i walked in the door, i strapped on the running clothes, some reflective bands, my skechers and hit the ground running. sheow! it felt good! a whole week off and my run felt easy on me. my knee and back behaved as well. i finished off my run with some darigold REFUEL…ahh…so good.

i’m happy to be back at it, so cheers to 2014 and your running goals!
