Doing much better!

Wow, the difference between now and about 10 days ago is like night and day. I feel like a different person. And for all the people who left comments of love and support, I simply cannot convey to you how much your words mean to me. My running motivation is back with a vengeance; I made it 14 miles Saturday and then came back for another 9.5 Sunday. It's quite an upswing...I'd have to check, but I think I averaged 20-25 miles per week for the past several, and then last week I ran 45. I think enough of my fitness from May remains that moving back up into the 40s won't kill me. I'm used to caution (which I think has kept me virtually injury-free), so this climb seems precipitous, but in truth I think I'm all right.

So, I wanted to put that happy update first, because I will now do this silly survey. Or, at least I will until work picks up for the day.
