5k Run - Mohawk River Bike Path

With the Cardiac Classic 5k coming up on Thanksgiving morning, and my knee having problems, I felt like I needed to get out and see what I could do. I've run in this race for the past 7-8 years, and though my time keeps getting slower with age, it's still fun to be out there with 1,000 other runners as a way to start the day.

Expecting problems today, I wore an elastic knee brace, and felt no pain at all. This is a good thing, but how it feels tomorrow may be a better indicator. Now I need to try to do this regularly 2-3 times every week and get the rest of the body in shape. Running is a good winter activity if I can tolerate it, and now is the time to start if I can.
