Okay, starting to see slight improvement. Hoping for some cooler weather in the next few weeks. Today was the first day below 70 (68) which helped. My foot that was operated on is always uncomfortable but tolerable. I am entered in the Chosen Half Marathon on November 18 so only 6-1/2 weeks to get ready. I'm sure it won't be my best or fastest race by what the heck, I only have to beat a bunch of OLD guys!

Here we go...I hit 1 MP mile. :-) HR is coming down. Now it's a balance between cardio buildup and leg buildup. Still hot, humid and no wind.
