Short-Term Running Goals:

Recovering from micro-fracture surgery on my right knee.  I tore the cartilage off of my knee while doing a speed-training run one month before Boston.  Doc gave me a cortisone shot so that I was able to finish Boston.  After the surgery, I was told to never run again. :(

Long-Term Running Goals:

QUALIFIED FOR BOSTON! April 16, 2011 

Ran Boston on April 14, 2012!

Married, 40 year old, mother of four. 

 

"In truth, runners don't race other runners.  They race against themselves: to conquer their wills, to transcend their weaknesses, to beat back their nightmares.  And while a runner can't actually beat himself, he can beat his time. Even years into running, he can get better." Running for His Life by Michael Hall

I ran 2 miles on the treadmill this morning before the MRI just so that it would be hurting when I went it.  The MRI showed that the micro-fracture has failed.  I am sad beyond words.  I go in next week to meet with my orthopedic surgeon.  He is suppose to be the best around.  Tiger Woods even had him operate on him.  It didn't do me any good.  Surgery again. :(
