Happy New Year! This morning, I drove to Tustin to put in 5k, and score myself some much-needed new running shoes. I’ve been training in Hokas – and my legs have been paying the price for it. It’s changed the way my foot lands on the pavement…and by the time I completed the morning run, my right knee was VERY sore.

After hitting Dicks Sporting Goods for a new pair of Brooks……

…I went back home and took care of my knee. I gave myself a couple of hours to heal up, and then I went back out and covered 10k. Let’s face it: I didn’t have much in the tank. I went out too fast this morning, beat up my knee (that was DUMB), and the afternoon was a slow slog. BUUUUT….the views did not suck at all.

Like I mentioned yesterday, I’m doing this to honor my close friends and his family, and to raise donation for the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism. If you’d like to learn more about the Foundation and their fantastic efforts, or if you’d like to make a donation, I’ve provided a link right below here.

Now I need to heal up and get ready for 13.1 miles tomorrow….
