I've been curious to know if....

....I could still run....

Each day for the last two months,  my runners and my 305 have been catching the corner of my eye.  That's because I took them out of the closet and placed them where I could not miss seeing them.  I have been wondering if I could even run again, would I enjoy it, would my runners and clothes still fit me.  The last time I laced up my runners and hit the neighbourhood was Sunday, November 27, 2011 at 7:54am.  I ran 5.05 kms and my time was 32:42.  

This morning, instead of just glancing at my runners and 305, and without even a second thought, I laced up my runners, strapped on my 305 (that was after donning a pair of shorts and shirt to match) then hit the pavement running.  It felt absolutely wonderful!  Joints, muscles, bones, heart, lungs all seemed to work in sync after about two minutes.  My plan was to do 5km any which way. I went slow, had two one minute walk breaks, enjoyed the scenery, the sun, the peacefulness.  Before I knew it I was back home in one piece feeling that feeling that I have missed.   
It felt so good, it felt so right!
Mmmmm!  I wonder if.......
