Tomorrow is the much anticipated Bellin 10K Run (or Walk, in my case.) It begins at around 8am for the elite runners. I will probably start actually walking sometime after 9am. I can't run it (due to the previously discussed knee pain) so I won't be starting with the running group. (Speaking of my knee, the MRI and consult with the orthopedic surgeon has confirmed my prediction. I have a bilateral meniscus tear in my left knee. Surgery is scheduled for early August.)
And the cool thing is that my wife, Tammy, will be walking with me! I am excited about that! We are not going to attend the big all you can eat spaghetti dinner for the runners. Instead, we are going to carb load tonight with a bowl of popcorn. Non-traditional, but it is what we want (well, it's what I want, at least.)
Summer classes have started for me, both the class that I teach and a certification course that I need to take. When combined with our planned vacation and camping weekends, this will be a very busy summer. I am already sort of looking forward to the knee surgery so that I have a reason to slow down a bit.
I'm going to follow this post with a recipe for simple Grilled Shrimp Scampi. It was easy, healthy and delicious!
