This morning's run was great and very uplifting! My friend Chasing Amy (from CR) and I headed out through the streets of South Philly at 5:30 a.m. I felt like Rocky. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> We met up with a group she's running with, Back on My Feet. The program works with homeless shelters in Philly to get the guys running and in just 4 months has generated amazing buzz and progress -- 3 or 4 guys ran the Philly Half Marathon last Sunday, and ran it well.<br><br>
Everyone greeted each other very warmly, we huddled up for a "game plan" and quick prayer, and hit the streets of Philly. After everyone was exchanging high 5's and hugs, and it was so energizing. I was ready to go do another run.<br><br>
So, we did about 3 miles with the guys, for 5 miles total to and from her house. On the way back the sun was rising and it was fun to run through a city just waking up.<br><br>
I was still in the dehydrated fog of cold medicine but enjoyed the run immensely anyway. If you want to learn more about the group, the website is <a href="http://www.backonmyfeet.org" target="_blank">www.backonmyfeet.org</a>.

SGH, sounds like a really enjoyable run!<br><br>
7.3 miles for me today in 59:57 (8:13). Beautiful breezy 33 degrees. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Lol Grizz not that...more the sitting there doing mind-numbingly boring stats in blowout games. And the incredibly uncomfortable chairs.

Sounds an inspriring group, SGH. I imagine a having a cutey along for the run brightened up their day as well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Good news. Ran 3 miles easy with no calf pain. Range of motion felt great today. I will make sure to ease back into running, but I am very encouraged that I'll get out there some during my vacation.

SGH,<br>
Sorry that I missed you on yesterday's run. Glad that you had a good time.<br><br>
This morning we took the guys to a spin class, it was my first time. It was probably a good thing for me since my foot was a little sore.<br><br>

I missed you too, patrick! Maybe another time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> That's good you took the guys to spinning. I was telling Amy finding them some indoor spaces will probably be good during the cold months, as new runners often don't take to very cold running.<br><br>
I was really impressed with the organization, and hope to participate as I can from 300 miles away.
