Added 0.1mile to my 1.5 mile run/walk

My wakeup heart rate was 56 this morning. I felt pretty good and was on the path by 9:15. I ran and walked the 1.5 miles like I've been doing, and I added a bit at the end. Being out early was nice -- lower temperature and more shade. Also, I carried two bottles (1 cup each) of water and drank about half of it during my run. After I finished, I drank most of what was left.

Congratulations on being named today's blog of note! After looking through your blog, I must say that I have the utmost respect for you. Here I am, an 18 year old, struggling with my own runs and Blogger. For you--at 73--to be willing to get back into running and the ever-changing world of technology and blogging is commendable. Kudos! I aspire to be like you. ;-)

Thanks to all of you who have left nice comments! I usually have 30-50 people visit this blog each day, but today, thanks to the Blog of Note, I've had 900 people, and there are still 7 hours left in the day.

I do enjoy running, and I enjoy sharing my experiences with others. I have another running blog, Running Injury Free that goes into a lot of detail about running without injury. I have 400-500 people visit that blog each day, and those of you who are into walking or running are invited to stop by that blog.

Tia, I would be honored to be mentioned in your blog!

I don't even know where to begin... the fact you are running in your 70's or the fact that you took the time to blog about it. Very inspirational...

..what is more inspirational to me is that you still blog after those running sessions. at 30 I do blog but never think about running again in my life, :) ... lazy me..
