Down but not out

Well I am still down but not out. I am rehabbing the foot and still have stiffness and pain in the morning and evening. I hope rehab helps. I am running the marathon no matter what!

WAITING

OK, nothing worse than making a Marine wait. I now have to go on Tuesday for the MRI. It was postponed, so I will find out a little later than I thought. Will update.
I miss running, Today is a wonderful evening and all I can do is think of running in the nice weather. I never thought that I would like to run or miss running. Somehow I have transformed into a person that looks forward to the future and what I can do and not what I should do. I cannot wait to heal and run again!

Feeling a little pain


Well, I have not run in a few days and I am feeling a little tightness in the back of my right knee. Feels like a ligament might be a little over worked. I am going to have to make up my running because this week I am working long days and have minimum time to run. We shall see what happens this week.

10k Rodeo Run

What a weekend. I ran the ConnocoPhillips Rodeo run on Saturday. I participated in the 10k and mn I feel great that I accomplished a milestone. I committed to the run and did it on my own. While trining for the run, I found information that Halliburton has a running TEAM. Before the beginning of the 10k, I met with the director of the team and I am now officially a member. I am so stoked! Maggie is starting to run with me. I cannot believe what a difference it has made in my life. I bought a new pair of running shoes and they are so much better than the shoes that I am retiring from running.

Please check out the 10k route and some stats.
