What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

Colon Cancer 5K

Well, I did it. I completed my first 5K after not being able to exercise for almost a year. I didn't break any records. Well I guess I did. I set my first record as a mom (ha). This was only the second time since I was released to exercise that I ran 3 miles. My other runs have been run/walks of 2-2.5 miles. Of course I wish I could have done this 5K faster, but regardless of the time, I did it. I kept telling myself that my son and husband were there waiting on me. It was the motivation that I needed to keep moving and not walk. After coming up the slight incline, I walked about 5 steps because of leg cramps but forced myself to go on. I didn't break the 30 minute mark. I came in at 31:21, but the way I look at it.. that's a very good place to start.
