Hello, I’m still here. Haven’t posted in days but still running. In fact been doing 7 to 8 miles daily for the past week, yes, every day. The strides feel lighter and I feel faster during these runs, reminding me that it was only a little more than a month ago that I ran New York and that I was still recovering from it. Now I feel the heaviness of marathon strides leaving and those of the middle distances arriving.
