Congrats and ... wait for it...Running

First off, congratulations to Indi upon becoming a US citizen this past month. Her first marathon, her birthday, and her citizenship all occurred in the past 30 days. For those of you unfamiliar with her, Indi is a KC Trail Nerd/Mud Babe who writes a neat blog that I follow.

On to running - This past week marked my first 30 mile week since I started getting knee treatments. And, while I do still feel a twinge from time to time, for the most part, my knees are holding up pretty well. I am planning to run a couple of marathon-type races (or the shortest ultras I can find). But for now, I'm hoping to trade off low-mileage weeks (20-25 mi) with higher-mileage weeks (30-40 mi) and see how everything is holding up.

I'll give a quick plug for a movie called 'Punching the Clown.' Nice cerebral little flick, worth the investment of time.

Sorry for the short post. I'll try to have more later this week.

  1. Thanks for the shout out :) I feel so honored!!
    Glad your knee is feeling better. My Mother-in-Law has really bad knees and refuses to get the shots because they hurt...but we keep telling her one time pain vs..pain all the time right?!! easy for me say I guess. Definitely alternate high and low...that worked pretty well for me. Let me know if you are looking at any trail races.
