11 months post-op.

February 10, 2018

Today marks 11 months since surgery, and it’s also a milestone I picked out the day I got injured. I was Googling recovery timelines while I waited in the ER and decided that I’d shoot for running the annual 5K race held by the nonprofit where my wife works. So, 2/10/18 has been on my mind a lot for nearly a year.

I’m happy to say that I completed the race and managed to come in a little under my goal time. Even more important: I came out of the event pain free and ready to continue training for an 8K race in late March. I have to remind myself that staying injury free is the main goal…it’s easy to get caught up worrying about times.
