I've also cut back on the strength-training because I somehow strained my right shoulder. I did it a while ago, but I haven't really given it a chance to heal. Let's put it this way: I did pushups last Wednesday, and my arm is still sore - that's from more than pushups.
And you know what, I'll get that River Run recap up tonight! It's not like I'm really all that descriptive about it anyhow. I came, I ran, I drank beer and ate biscuits and gravy.
