About this time last year, I was preparing to walk that half marathon. I had to put it on hold this year due to hip bursitis. Thinking back to that day I had no idea if I could accomplish the goal. I went into that event only half prepared. ... Read more

This next week instead of trying to avoid candy (which I will follow the same rules as last week. I must bring my own candy and account for it if I do have some - can't eat my co-workers because I didn't buy it and didn't plan to account for it... Read more

I'm feeling pretty sad - I went to the doctor the other day to ask about hip pain. From all of my reading, I pretty much knew this was hip bursitis. So, I've stopped all my walking (deliberate of course - we all still have to walk) and decided... Read more
