First run yesterday...

On Nov 21 I had an open bowel resection and takedown of a fistula. Spent 5-6 days in the hospital in Seattle. Returned home to Honolulu 11 days later after a followup with my surgeon.

I have quickly worked back to full activities. Yesterday I decided to go on a short, but hilly 2 miler with pretty stiff winds. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the feeling of a briskly beating heart and lots of oxygen entering my lungs. I experienced no pain or other side effects and I'm raring to go again.

During my run I felt like the universe was saying to me, "Welcome back."

Awesome! I know exactly how that feels. I was so itchy to exercise after my surgery.

You should have said you were in Seattle. I would have visited you. Hope your surgery worked well for you.
