Running is my mental-Ctrl-Alt-Del.
Very soon! Yay!
How is it feeling now? Can you walk fast without pain? Have you tried to jog at all yet?
Woohoo! I know you already know this, but I have to say it anyway, make sure to take it easy when you get back out there.

I am planning on trying my first test run in a few weeks too, Hilary! Sometime around Christmas. I biked today for the first time.
Huh, I have a blog?
It's best to never get injured, but if you do, make sure you learned something from it.
What did you learn?
Soon little one soon!!LOL
Hilary, I think you have probably gained some good perspective through this tough time.
Honestly I didn't run a real race until I had been running for 3 years and it was a half marathon (did the Race
for the Cure 5k in my first year but it was more of a charity/girls thing for me).
I am actually grateful I had those 3 years where I was running simply because I loved running and it was fun.
I didn't know any other runners, didn't know anything about running message boards or racing.
Now after almost 10 years of racing I can honestly say that when my races days (or days of racing 10+ times/year
and marathons) come to and end that I will still love running for it's own sake. When that day comes I will change
my siggy to "Racing, who cares?"LOL
I hope when you come back you are running well and pain free.
You too Mandy!
