Oh hey, it's a personal life entry!

Apologies for the lack of updates this past week. I just had surgery to fix a lingering problem that was keeping me from training the way I wanted to. One of those things that probably could have been prevented had I taken time off or even just cut back when I first started having a problem, instead of continuing to run through it and letting myself overcompensate, but no sense dwelling now, and pushing the limits comes with the understanding that getting hurt once in a while is inevitable. So, in the meantime I'll leave you with a quote from steeplechaser Anthony Famiglietti as well as my Twitter account that I just started, in case anyone feels like reading about my personal life (which, for now, will probably involve me being emo about not running).
"You are going to face obstacles. You are going to get sick. Everyone gets sick in running. You are going to get hurt. Almost every single runner has been hurt at some point. That's going to come. The athletes that succeed are the ones that understand how to deal with that." -Fam
And as long as I'm quoting Fam, here's another quote, just because I love this one:
"I used to have a background in skateboarding when I was in high school. It was a really exciting individual sport to me. It was all about what you put into it is what you got out. The amount of time you learned a trick, the aggressiveness and the guts you had to go down a flight of steps; you knew you were going to go down the first 10 attempts on it. You might crack your skull open, but eventually you were going to land it. That takes a certain attitude to be able to do that. And so that was the attitude I took towards running. It was a little reckless." -Fam

  1. Hey Becki,

    How's your recovery going? Hopefully things are healing well. When do you anticipate being able to run again?
