Greetings reader. Hope life is treating you well. Right now I am surprisingly sane given the fact that it’s been three weeks since I last ran. I visit the chiropractor three times a week and all I know is he pushed down on the vertebrae that are causing me the trouble. Not sure how well it is working but I am in no pain right now. I’m putting a blind faith in the chiropractor right now.
It is especially hard as I see blogs, facebooks, and emails of fellow runners gearing up for another weekend training run. I miss the run. Miss the people. I firmly believe I will make a smooth comeback and will be running in my dream marathon in Northern California in May. This hope/dream is fueling me to push forward with a positive attitude.
It does appear that I will be running a 1/2 marathon at the OKC Memorial. This will allow me to continue training for the Avenue of the Giants. After that, I am set to do Freewheel Oklahoma. Freewheel is a road bike tour that travels the entire length of the state. The tour lasts an entire week and requires camping out at night. Not much of a camper but very up for the challenge. It’ll be especially fun to blog as I continue the tour. More about that later.
For now, I am going to step back and relax. Rest my body and heal my back. Continue to work on mental aspects and keep talking to God. I know he’s listening. Hopefully I will know when to shut up so I can listen back.
