The Athlete in Me Is Ready to Blast Through the Starting Gate!

Friday, January 25, 2013

The athlete is me is ready to blast through the starting gate!

After a heck of a week (with two deaths in the family) at the end of a heck of a month (that started with the violent death of one of DD's mentors) at the end of the crazy season (four month long retail season), I am ready to move on. I finally made an appointment with my doc to find out what's going on with my stiff knee and what needs to happen to make it strong - this has been on my mind for a while as the next step towards realizing my dream of doing a marathon this year.

Next up is another 10K in the Winter Run Series - #4 of 6 - I'm on track to earn the "I Ran Them All" hoodie!

I am identifying myself internally more and more as an athlete. I just discovered John Bingham's writing - I would also call myself an 'adult-onset athlete'.

Now I am eager to get outdoors - can hardly wait for better weather to get outside to hike and run!
