November 2011

9 years ago today...

On November 1st, 2002, I went to my local YMCA and got myself a gym membership. This profoundly changed my life.

I recently discussed on the 1st episode of Step Ahead my history of becoming a runner. That all began 9 years ago today. I was depressed, overweight and ashamed of what I had let myself come to. It had to stop. Thankfully I was able to pick myself up, dust myself off and move my feet forward. I am grateful for making that change.

Heads up!

I see that many people are getting to my blog by searching "Ford Focus FIre" or "casted ankle". I'll give you some help.

The story about my Ford Focus fire can be found here. Please note it's also in the top right hand of the screen, between 'running achievements' and 'search'.

The broken ankle story is here.

Anything else can be searched on by clicking the 'search' link at the top of the page or the search box on the bottom of the page.

Achilles Tendonitis

I had to stop running this week after I found out I have Achilles Tendonitis. After getting that "pins & needles" feeling in my Achilles, I knew I had to stop. I saw a physiotherapist this week and I have avoided cardio.

You can hear all about it on the latest episode of Step Ahead 006, where I discuss what I have gone through this week and what my future plans will be.

Check out the episode here.
