It's been quite a while since I've posted, so here's the skinny. During the entire month of August my entire focus was mileage and a 'comeback' To repair my knee and my spirit. I'm happy to report that both are doing fine and I ended the month of August with 108.51 miles. Not too shabby for a dreadful July and a stress fracture. Today I handed in 14.62 miles on a beautify September morning and just grateful for the ability to run once more.
Too (and this week) I've been fighting some bipolar issues, the worst I've experienced in quite a bit, but running has really helped... at least more so today. I know this is no miracle drug, but it's not a drug. This works for me and makes this all manageable. Also I know that these issues and flare ups will only last a short time compared to the months they used to hang around. And all I can do and want to do it run, it works and is a blessing. The next two marathons are on the radar and I'm looking forward to handing in some strong end of year performances.
