Freakishly Flexible 5k (FFFK) !!

Imagine my shock upon finding this!!!


I gasped, I laughed, I cried... you guys are so cool. USJogger set this up: a race in my honor!! I really don't know what to say. Thank you so much. I so wish I could run it with you. Go to his site for more details. I'm still cracking up that he used that picture and made a logo.
I am hanging in there. My surgery is March 6th. Thank you all so much for your prayers and kind words. All the support is really helping me.
I can't wait to see the outcome of FFFK.

Hi Nancy- I came across your blog from your post on POM's, I saw that you were going to be on crutches for 6 weeks (me too, yeah...not!), so I popped over to see what happened to you. First, I have to say that I read your last post and oh my gosh, how I can relate to everything you said that you would be missing, my eyes teared up, it was everything I have been feeling. Running was mine, it got me through what would have been the worst year of my life, it changed me, and I loved the "me" that I was becoming, and I certainly wasn't ready for my time with running to end or be put on hiatus.
3 years ago I tore the labrum in my shoulder and had to have it repaired, it was definitely an "involved" surgery and re-hab. I wish you the best of luck for a smooth surgery and recovery.

Sunshine said...

"I can be fixed" you say... that is hopeful.
Best wishes for your journey.. Keep writing!

Running requires lots of energy, but gives you great pleasure! To provide my body with enough energy I am taking dietary supplements which were developed to enhance physical capacities of soldiers under the extreme conditions. These are special pre-workout supplements by Military Grade. This products can be ordered at amazon. They work perfect - just pure energy, right when I need it most. These products make me feel excellent; I often train outdoors, despite the weather. When your body is toned and your muscles prepared to work hard, you will never get blown with the wind!
