Long story short: injuries, laziness and an ability to adjust to my first full-time job derailed my running for a full year. Hard to believe it’s been an entire year since my last update here. After the St. Luke’s Half Marathon, my knee refused to feel better, so I just never really got around to trying to run. But more than that, somewhere along the line, it was almost as if I lost that inner spark, the fire that spurred me on for so many years.
So here I am, ready to get back at it. I feel refreshed, recharged, recommitted, (mostly) healthy and ready to return from oblivion. Twice over the past year I worked myself up to about thirty miles a week before getting derailed again. I won’t really try to make excuses. My lack of running is mostly attributable to laziness. But I’m back now, and I’ll document my journey as I attempt to reclaim my former glory and more importantly, that true love for running. It’s good to be back.
