Turning the corner and other news

Whoo hooo. I'm starting to feel a bit optimistic that I've turned a bit of a corner with this injury. The past week has felt much better, and I'm starting to very gradually add more running. I did a half-hour run last week, and also did three days in a row. Both were firsts for a long time. Yesterday was our first snowfall of the season, and it was almost unbearable to not run, but I somehow managed it.

Some other stuff: My brother Jeff and his family are in Australia for the winter. They are keeping a blog of their adventures here. It's been fun to follow what they are up to. Here they are before they left (Jeff, Heather, Whit, Sully).

A really nice sunset this fall:

Halloween at our place is followed by the annual Smashing Pumpkins event.

I went through a puzzle phase early in my injury. I'm over it now. The cats were very helpful.

These La Sportiva stickers say on the back: Stick it to your car, your helmet, your dog, or whatever. Siku played along, but then gave me a look as if to say, "Don't you wish you could run instead of playing with stickers?" Bad doggie.

I took these this morning of the pretty snow.

Glad to hear your injury is finally coming around and your back to running again. By the way those are some very cute doggies. Merry Christmas and all the best in 2010!

Love the pics. It looks way colder were you live than here in Eagle River.

Keep healing.

I recognize that sunset sky. I remember wishing I had taken a picture of it so I am glad you did. If only every winter day could be as sunny and cheerful as yesterday was. I was going to take a picture of it but didn't so I am glad you did: ) Great to hear you are feeling better.
