Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years.

This  year, instead of picturing how the Stanley Cup would look at the HP Pavilion, I'm just going to look at each game. So game 1 is Wednesday against the surprising Colorado Avalanche. I hope the  HTML  line of Danny H eatly, Joe  T hornton, and Patrick  M ar l eau come out ready to play, and Nabokov shakes off that disappointing Olympics. So, until the outcome of Wednesday the beard that's been growing since Saturday stays. It's status will depend on the Sharks performance; a good game with a loss will require some analysis, a win keeps the beard, and a loss means out comes the razor. Game 1 is Wednesday, and though I sound cynical, I'm excited;
