I didn’t do nearly as well as I anticipated at the MCM yesterday but I finished. And that means I successfully made a comeback from my knee injury. 14 months ago a head doctor at UVa, looking at my MRI, said I wouldn’t run again. I was detemined to run–and marathon–again though. Yesterday, vindication was MINE! πŸ™‚


Yesterday also proved why the marathon is so tough and unpredictable…but also why it’s so great. I’ll do a full recap soon. For today, I’m going to rest and recover (and hunker down from the storm). Stay safe my east coast friends!!

    So proud of you! You have overcome a lot and you went there, raced, and finished it…that’s all you can ask for! πŸ™‚ get some rest sweets. Both my hubby and I’s workplaces closed due to sandy so after I came back from the gym we’ve been on the couches lol. Stay safe! πŸ™‚

    Congrats, Lady!! Can’t wait to hear more about it. So proud of you for sticking it to those doctors and for giving people inspiration when they get sidelined by an injury! {I am slowly but surely overcoming plantar fasciitis!}

    This is my dream race … someday!!

    Congrats! My wife was told by her doctors that she’d never run again, too. Now, 10 years later, she’s training for her first half. It’s fun proving people wrong, isn’t it!
