The comeback part 1- Race Reports

Week 16 was going to be my scan.  Week 17 was going to be team states.  Week 18 is going to be my comeback! I had my surgery, I followed instructions, I’ve been feeling great, and my only setback has been getting cleared to get back into things.  Last week after another re-schedule of my…

Going nowhere fast.

I’ve been banished to the trainer.  My world has ended. Week 9 of forever! Being an athlete for most of my life, I’m used to injury cycles.  It happens.  Post injury, it’s all about the management.  And I’ll be the first to admit I’m not the easiest patient.  I see the word no as a…
