A Quiet November

After the Marine Corps Marathon and the injury issues lately, I've opted out of a bunch of local races in Vienna that I normally run. It's been a quiet, and somewhat sad, month from a running perspective. I miss the road.

But I had a very enjoyable Thanksgiving, enjoyed running the dog down an empty beach, back to running as enjoyment instead of running as training. The hip still bothered me, but when you're on a beach at sunrise, you really can't ask for too much more.

And as always, this Thanksgiving, my thoughts are with those overseas serving on the front lines and away from their family. Though my brother is safely back in the States, there's still a lot of troops spending this holiday season in the sand.
