>General Running>Is it possible to have a body not made for running?
Roads were made for journeys...

I don't know if that offered any comfort or helped at all...I often read these forums but am reluctant to post in fear of saying something wrong or stupid, but your question just really struck a chord with me because I've gone through the same thing. I really hope everything works out for you...remember that no matter how injured your body physically might get, you will always have the the steely, unmoving mind and resolve of a runner! Best wishes, and happy trails!
