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>.

Sounds like a blast SGH. Off to do stats at the girl's basketball tournament today and tomorrow...shouldn't be much fun. Hehe oh well, I'll live.
Lol Grizz not that...more the sitting there doing mind-numbingly boring stats in blowout games. And the incredibly uncomfortable chairs.
