We have much work to do before coming to a final decision on whether to stay put, or move closer to the coast (22 miles away from where we live currently).

- Being able to run again without pain, even if it's just a mile. Forward progression, I keep reminding myself, forward progression.
- Mexican food, ``'nuff said.
