Glad to hear that! Pt. Pinole is a place where one can run pretty fast (well, at least in terms of fraction of top speed). Briones will be a lot of walking. Hopefully you'll even better by next weekend.
Thanks, Dennis. Looking forward to seeing you!
Charlie, you always seem to peak for these A-meets.
Sorry to hear your back is 'feeling tender' today. And only a week after leaving Italy, where you were feeling so much better. Could there be something in your home routines or environment that negatively affects your back? In my case, it was tossing out my perfectly good bed, and sleeping on something very much firmer.
Hopefully your back will respond when you descend into the 'Mediterranean Climate' of Northern California!
Well, certainly the bed could be a partial culprit.
Even though I have a really good office chair, the hours I spend at the computer are a definite factor. Just getting away from that for 10 days or so when I was abroad had to have helped. Perhaps retirement will have to show up sooner than later.
