Thanks for your comment on my "Leadville 10K" blog. I am glad to hear that you would have kept running with a painful injury. A broken leg bone may have stopped us. Soft tissue damage? No way!
I have gotten over the need to out lift young guys. I have three sons that played college football and I bow to their superior strength. And I ain't weak by a long shot.
Now when it comes to running - different story. I can take two of the big boys and it is pretty much a tie with the third. Now, I have two "skinny" kids. (Y es, I have 5 kids) I can't beat Ben or Katie because they got the recessive running gene. Both were highly competitive college runners. When I run a race with Ben and Katie, Ben usually takes overall and Katie wins fastest female. They get this speed from their mom, not me!
Thanks for the comment on my blog. Yes its one step at a time. Less than 2 weeks until my husband is here, so that will help. And then in 3 weeks when school starts, a routine will help. Its hard to get into a true routine for the short time of summer... 2021 days ago
