Making Progress

Although a certifiable pain, the air cast is definitely working. I don't have pain with every step I take. I did an interval workout on a stationary bike yesterday that was challenging and more importantly, doesn't seem to have left any marks.
I am so proud of you guys that are participating in "Race for the Cure" on April 18th. I have participated for many years and actually ran it last year. That event is what created the itch to try training for the Mini! I am very sad that I will not be able to do this with you, but I will be with you in spirit. It is a gratifying and emotional event. I have wonderful memories of last years race. So with everything else, I have a story about it. My husband Rick was volunteering at the Zoo that Saturday morning (as he does every Saturday) so he came out to the road to wait for me to pass. It was pouring down rain....(I was having so much fun that I didn't realize how hard it was raining!). When I passed by Elephant hill I heard Rick call to me. There he was standing under an umbrella. I ran up the hill to give him a kiss. He told me that I felt like a popsicle! When I ran back to join my fellow runners, a guy in the crowd asked if I was going to get a kiss at every mile! I told him to keep up with me to see!
I hope everyone enjoys their recovery week.


  1. Ginger,
    What a great race story! I am so glad you are finding your way through this injury and sending thoughts of stability and strength to your leg!

  2. What a wonderfully sweet story. Kisses in the rain make everything better. I wish you could be there for this year's race, but never fear, we will all be thinking of your story.
