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="" 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="" target="_blank"></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="" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">
