Met Mike at Evergreen Park, did the bridge-bridge-downtown route. I felt ... ok. 

After two months of pain-rest-clear-exercise-more pain, I saw a doc and was assured I'm not completely broken. He diagnosed an abductor strain or possible small tear, which turned into hip flexor tendinitis over the summer. I'm seeing a PT now and things are improving. 

But still, slow and short for awhile.

The annual Thanksgiving Day run in Silverdale, four miles out on the Clear Creek Trail, mostly with Mike and Tony Epps. Good crowd, caught up with some friends, and when Chris Lemke saw me he said: "Look at you, don't tell me you haven't gained 15 pounds." He's right. I like having honest running friends. 

No soreness in the afternoon, which was a first for a long time and I was very pleased.

From Mike's house out Rocky Point and back, with his dog. Not fast, but all the "other" things are bothering me now. But those aren't the damaged parts, just the muscles that are out of shape. 

Hips ok, achilles tightened up during breakfast at Mike's though. No watch.
