What a Beautiful Day!

It's not just a beautiful day because it's overcast and 60 at 11:00am. It is a wonderful day because I had my follow up appt at the Orotho and was cleared to start running again! I have to start at 1-1.5 miles for the first two weeks. That's fine because I'll take what I can get at this point. I'm also cleared for easy hiking since the ortho doesn't want me trail running for about 6 more weeks.

Tomorrow I will don my running clothes and hit the nice flat greenway for a run! I'm so excited I can hardly contain myself. Then Friday I might head to the Ridgeline trail for an easy hike. I hope it all goes well. There is  a little voice in the back of my mind telling me that things might not be all unicorns and fluffy bunnies tomorrow. What if the ortho is wrong and I'm not ready? What if my ITB decides to join in the fun? I will ignore that voice as best as I can and hope for the best and be prepared for dead unicorns and fluffy bunnies.

Happy running everyone!


  1. Hooray! Brilliant news, probably slowly for you, but that forced hiatus seemed to go by rather quickly. Fingers crossed it did the trick and you can come back stronger than ever now.

    I'm really loving the smartwool socks and rocking my pendants and wristlet, thank you so very much.

  2. ps so glad you have the go ahead to "easy hike" again now too. Can you back date that to our Seattle tour of my local trails and park? ;)

  3. It felt like it went by pretty quickly since I had things to keep me buys. I probably spent most of it planning our vacation and making crafts. Glad you are liking your goodies!
