Okay, so with all the freaking amazing-ness of what was September 1st, I didn't run yesterday as I had planned. But that actually turned out to be fine, and I got to use the new shoes on my FIRST OFFICIAL TRAINING RUN today. Yes, it has officially started. It was only a 35 minute trek (3.4 miles), but it was very nice.
Of note: waking up and watching SportsCenter on Sunday mornings is always cooler when you can hear one of your closest friends' play-by-play broadcast on the lead story.
I have numerous links and pics to goodness from the Mountaineers' victory yesterday, which I will probably post later.
