Have you ever been sidelined from running, but wanted to maintain some fitness and muscle tone?

Goodbye to the Gimp!

The gimp is gone!

Did you hear that? After nearly a month of walking with an awkward gimp (both pre-surgery and post-op), I feel like a caged bird set free. It's been so long since I've been able to bend my knee (like, since a few days after Grandma's Marathon, June 17th), that the "Frankenstein gate" had become my norm.

Flashbacks and FOMO

Yikes!!! I'm in a current state of flashback-alitis and it's given me a serious dose of FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). And it ain't pretty...

Have You Thanked a Healthcare Professional Lately?

Healthcare is something I have taken for granted most of my life.

I've always been pretty healthy, and (in the past 12 years at least) have been pretty fit. I've gone to the doctor for my annual physical and, on occasion, if I've been sick. I trust my doctors, and do what they tell me. I know they have the education and knowledge to truly know what is best for the human body, specifically MY body. As much as I appreciate the training and discipline it takes to work in the healthcare field, though, I had not really "gotten it" in terms of just how much heart and soul are required as well.

A New Normal (for Now)

Life is about taking chances, don't you think? Expanding the comfort zone? Trying new things?

Well, welcome to my new (though temporary) kind of "normal."

Find a Way, Make it Happen

Find a way, Make it happen. How's that for a new mantra?

July is gonna be a tough month this year. Ironically, we're already a week into it...so it should go rather quickly, no?

Oh, Dear Running. Old buddy, old pal, this is not "goodbye," but merely "see ya in a couple months..." (Hmmmm, that might make for an interesting song ... if only I were a song writer).
