I am trying the whole I am a runner thing, again. This has been a long time coming, due to injuries and life I have not run in a very long time. I really want to run again but some how I don’t seem to have the drive to do it any more. At one point I had no problem getting up at 4:00 in the morning to go out for a “run” that was more of a shuffle that was slow and painful for me. At some point in the process I got better at it and I was able to run for more than 10 miles at a time. I was able to finish a half marathon, granted in was not so much of running the half, it was mostly walking due to you guessed it again…an injury. But some how I still want to get back out there and do it again. So, tonight DS and I started the process one more time. We walked a little over 3 miles, he runs cross country and track and they run this route so I wanted to give it a try. I have to say that the knee did ok, it still has not been diagnosed as to what it is, maybe a stress fracture or just issue with the tendons in the knee. Maybe some day I will know for sure what the deal is with it. But for now I am going to keep working up to running again, I am going to keep walking for now but hope to be back out there running. I am hoping to be able to finish Bay to Breakers with out dieing in about a month so I need to work up to 7.2 miles before the middle of May so wish me luck.
