Spinning Wheels and Tiny Screens

No, that's not me in the photo. But it almost could be. With this long-lasting hamstring trouble, I've spent a lot of time doing something along these lines. The winter is a bit cold and snowy in the Twin Cities to be biking outside on icy roads, so I've been getting to know Netflix pretty well over the past few months.

I suppose the good news is that I'm actually running a little bit again. Nothing impressive, but I'm up to an every-other-day jog at a reasonable pace. I'll take it. Even if my hamstrings continue to bother me. Sigh.

As I've noted before, NOT running is actually the time in your life when you will appreciate running like never before. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, I suppose. But I honestly miss even those aspects of being a runner that sometimes get a bit annoying - like all of the extra laundry, or the early morning alarms, or the cold fog of April, or the sapping heat of August, or the chilly October rain, or the icy cold January wind. The truth is, I'd rather be like this guy than the one above:
Yes, that does qualify me as a bit nuts. Then again, aren't we all, in one way or another?

Good running everyone. Hope to re-join the tribe soon.
