Riding the waves!
No, not surving - the waves of the scale! :) Hahaha.

Ran today - YAY!
4 miles, just as scheduled. Felt good - my stupid hip bruise hurt a little bit w/ the impact just travelling up to the bruised area, but it was clearly external, not joint pain or anything. Kept it at my perfect easy pace range, no problem.
