happy summer solstice!
summer officially arrives here on the east coast in a few more hours - at 12:39 pm, in fact. fathers day arrived at midnight! can't remember when these two days last coincided.
i'm marking both days without running - midway between my two eye surgeries (right eye done last wednesday, left one this wednesday). one the plus side, will get better vision - hurray! on the negative side - no running (among numerous activities restricted). that's a major downer because there are so many great races going on!
on the conservative side, i won't be able to lace up my running shoes for 2 weeks following the second surgery. that means i may not get back to running until the first week of july. that's a lot of detraining to make up. but, taking the long view, it's not a big price to pay for getting better eyesight!
so that's where i'm at on this summer solstice/fathers day 2015!
and for all the dad's out there - happy fathers day!
