Itís been a long time. So much has happened and so much has changed. All I can tell you is that I try to be humble and grateful every single day. There are days when things arenít so great, but they could be so much worse than they are. ... Read more

Brief Running Update

Saturday, July 09, 2011      5 comments

I ran 2 miles a few days after my initial run. All went well and my pace was quicker. The next weekend found me stuck on stupid, as I ran at an easy pace for about 4.2 miles. The cardio part was fine, but it was too much of a jump in dis... Read more

Sunday, June 26, 2011      10 comments

It wasn't pretty, but you couldn't pry the smile off of my face. After a very long absence, I went to the park with the kids today and ran 1.2 miles. It was very slow and much harder than before I stopped running, but it was a joy. I'm ju... Read more

Today was my long-awaited doctor's visit. I've been experiencing less pain as time has gone on, so I was feeling good about things. I've been wearing my cast religiously every day. I had another x-ray scheduled today and I hoped it would turn... Read more

And The Doctor Says...

Sunday, January 30, 2011      8 comments

Yes, I went back to the sports podiatrist this past week. And I got in trouble, because I haven't been wearing my brace much. You see, I can't do the things I need to do at work with the air cast on. He understands that to a point, but remind... Read more

I finally got in to see the SP today. I actually became familiar with this specialist when I worked as a running specialist. One of my customers had been to see him and had nothing but good things to say about him, so I knew who I was going to... Read more
