Subaru, Vacation, and Injury

I'll begin with Last Friday's Subaru Buffalo 4 mile road race. Friends and I from work decided LOOONNG ago to run in this. It calls itself the best road race in the city-- It's in a great location and is suppose to have the greatest after party.

Last Friday? It was wet, rainy and cold- I still ran. 28:50 was my time-- for a 4 miler I am happy-- especially when you consider I have an injury to report.

It's not major-- at least that's what I hope. My left lower portion of my leg from the knee down-- in the front-- has been killing me. I had taken several days off-- in fact- ran for the first time since the Subaru ( 7 miles ) last night, felt great during the run--- not so great after.

I am on vacation this week-- and traveling- which explains the lack in blog progress.. Heading to the doc's office tonight-- will let you know. Wish me luck!

I hope you are all well-- Will be checking blogs tonight while I rest my leg! I am guessing Brian (a Runner's blog) has broken a 4 minute mile-- Melanie Tait has run a marathon, and Glenn Jones is now an Iron man- am I right?


  1. Maybe shin splints? I hope you get some answers.

    Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

  2. Great time for a wet 4 miler. I hope the leg pain is nothing serious. Do you have a good pair of running shoes with low mileage?? Enjoy your vacation!

  3. No, I haven't broken a 4 minute mile yet. I'm not really sure I could even get under 5 - though I think it would be close. Anyway, it sounds like shin splints to me too, though I'd trust the doctor's opinion over mine. I was just about to come here and give you trouble for not blogging in a while. Keep us posted!

  4. Pain is always a part of us as runners by heart. No PAIN, No Gain. and let me add to that. NO WIN.

    Enjoy your vacation! Upload pics for us to see! ; )

  5. I was wondering where you were. Take care of that injury buddy. Let us know what happens.
