Long Time Gone...

A few months ago I posted a desperate plea for those with advice about Plantar Fascists...and had many helpful and wonderful responses. After taking a month off I had been running for a week when I stepped on a rusty- very long- very sharp screw (barefoot) and it went through my foot- my non-injured foot of course- and was off for another month! So that is the cause of my disappearance for the last few weeks. Painful in so many ways! But I've still been hovering- jealously watching all your amazing accomplishments- not much to add.

But, I have to say... I AM BACK! Yippee!! I decided to jump into a 1/2 marathon yesterday- I decided on Friday to do it simply as a training run- and placed 2nd in my age devision and 4th overall- in the womens! 1:42 something- I couldn't read the seconds and they haven't posted results. But it felt so good to run- and with people- and not hurt!

Congrats!! On both the recovery and the fast time. Wow- I am only that fast in my dreams. I am so happy for you. Can't wait to hear more about your return to running!

How do you do that after being off for 2 months? I am really impressed. I took the summer off for injuries and am now back to square one. Frustrating.

WOW! What a great finish! Apparently your time off agreed with you. I wish I could have a time like that after little training. Hope your come back continues to go well for you!
