wood i

after two weeks down, i finally ran again last saturday. just six miles. in the time i’d normally cover nine. but we took it slow ~ my wingman and i ~ and made it fun. something i’d been missing since the official training began. new to us park. wet trails. an archery range we skirted through hoping no one showed up to shoot or if they did, that they couldn’t hit the fast moving targets we liked to think we were. at one point i even insisted we stop for me to swing on a vine. why not. the woods are fun.


screw tarzan. me jane!

i can’t say i came off that run feeling physically whole but i was reminded why i run. what i love about the freedom of the open trails. why i hate the constraints of concrete sidewalk prison walls.

i took another two days down after. focused on stretching. putting the SI joint back where it belongs. shifting the body in hopes of completing the puzzle. and something got better. tuesday i ran four. wednesday five including one with a mini-me guest appearance. and this weekend i’m revisiting the sight of the fools for as many as the body will allow. maybe healing the body is as simple as healing the heart.
