I am either going to run this week or first of next week. I can’t believe it has been over a month since I ran last.

The pain is still at the front of my mind. I really don’t want to rush it if my knee needs more time to rest, but I am getting anxious to run.

We run as a family. Half marathon in st. George in January. That is my goal.

I have not been running in a while. I sure do miss it.

I think my knee needs a little more time before I start running again.

I have mixed emotions about the results of the MRI on my left knee. That it came back normal should be exciting news. But the fact is, the pain is still there. Now it is there when I walk sometimes. I just don’t get it. The original doctor said to come in and possibly get injections. Not sure why or what that even means. It seems odd to do that when we don’t even know he problem. Not sure I will go back to the doctor. Seems

The other issue I am facing…. I have not run in a while and I AK beginning to feel lazy again. I am tired by 5 pm. It should not have to be this way. 

Time to implement other means of exercise.

My favorite time to run is early morning. I love a beautiful sunrise.

This is a picture from Lake Powell, but this is what I am talking about.  Pure and serene.  It is refreshing to see this.

When do you like to run?

August 27th was a long day. One of the best ever! We decided to run the fish lake relayback in July when we ran the liberty 5k in richfield.

Our team name – slower than cold tar sponsored by Blake electric co.

Team: Slower than Cold Tar

Start time: 6:30am

I was excited to run but nervous for my knee. My first run was practically up hill and surprisingly my knee did not hurt as bad as my calf muscles.

My knee on the second run was ok to start off. I could tell there was pain but bearable. About 1 or 1.5 mileage into this run the pain became excruciating. With about 3 miles to go it felt like the energy in my knee went out. Each step sent a Sharp pain on the outside Of my knee. Yes it was hot outside but that was not my problem.

The pain almost brought me to tears but I was determined not to let myself or ky team down. I dug deep and began to think that people that have been key players in my life. That is what kept me going. I only stopped for water but to get going again was hard for the pain was greater on start up. I knew each step was painful but it would get me closer to my goal. I am grateful for my team as they helped me get through the last few miles.

Let’s just say that each of us had our struggle on our 2nd leg. Between the heat and longer miles each of us were dealing with some sort of adversity. It was a humbling experience to watch team members push through each step.

We completed our first relay as a team. I could not have been more proud of my team. Can’t wait for my knee to heal so I can get back to running.

What keeps you motivated?
