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. 

B-24 Liberator

The last of the 3 planes from the Wings of Freedom Tour, the B-24 Liberator. To me it's not the best looking bomber of the World War II era. The names on the side of the plane are all the people who have sponsored/donated to keep the plane flight worthy. This is the only restored and flying B-24J in the world, which is pretty impressive and expensive. Apparently the operating costs are over $4,000 a flight hour.

In talking with some of the people associated with the group the US government is trying to close down their operation through various tax hurdles. There's no clear reason given why this is, but many believe the government would like the public to forget about WWII. I hope that isn't true.
