AM - I flew in to Fort Collins last night for a week long training class, so of course I reached out to Paul to do a run or two together. We met at the Timberline and Poudre trailhead and ran a brisk 7 in ~7:05 avg. It was a pleasant run in good company. 

I was worried about my leg as it was painful all through my travels yesterday. Walking down to my car this morning also brought on sharp pains. But once we got moving it was like I never had an injury. Incredible. I put ice on it back in the hotel and I've been pain free all day.

PM - Added 6 in 6:52 avg. It's incredible to run away from the oppressive air of New Orleans. I need to move to the mountains. Also, no pain again. I'm cautiously optimistic.
