Dealing With Your Running Injury

August 2, 2012

11

An injury humbles you to the core.  It renders you powerless and transforms you into a spectator.  It is the water to your fire; the frown to your smile.  It is the antithesis of forward progression; the unexpected halt in training.  It tests your patience and attempts to shake your resolve.  It is a time […]

“Back” to Square One

Sitting here and staring at the computer reflecting on the stupidity of my actions in the days prior has left me disappointed.  Perhaps disappointed is not even strong enough of a word, but at the moment it most adequately explains my current state.  Sitting here isn’t even an accurate enough description seeing as I am […]

Last night I started playing with an old pocket Etch A Sketch I had sitting on a book shelf.  I stared at it for a while before shaking loose the picture I had drawn a year before.  I wouldn’t say my drawing was perfect, but nonetheless it was a drawing.  Growing up I never really […]

Running, or rather, any form of exercise, has become a necessity in my life.  I don’t always enjoy the blood, sweat and tears of it all.  Sometimes, I downright despise it.  But, when all is done and I am standing there wiping away the sweat from my eyes, I realize how important it all is […]

I once thought I would never run a full marathon.  Actually, I once thought I would never even run a 10K.  To be honest, I have never run a 10K to this day, because, well, I committed myself to something more.  I learned after my first couple of 5K’s that I was capable of anything […]
