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. 

It was 50 years ago today that "the other moon watch" earned it's moniker while on Commander Scott's wrist. If you don't know the story, basically Scott's Speedmaster had a malfunction so he ended up wearing a Bulova prototype that Bulova had given him. And the rest is history. Though a big watch in all dimensions, and a quartz, this continues to be one of my favorite watches, and I look forward to completing my sub-collection of moon watches when a Speedy eventually gets added.
