Ran the Cottonwood Heights Turkey Trot 5k with Andy for the second year. He ran about 3 minutes faster than last year. I'm thankful that my baseball playing son is still willing to run 5k's with me without really ever training. Also thankful to have Abby home for a few days.

More better, I had zero pain in either knee today for the first time in about 2 years. Thinking I might start training?

Sitting around waiting to eat now!

PM: 4 mile walk post-dinner.
