Remember that one time...

that I tried to become a runner?

The time that I went and found someone to teach me the proper running technique. Well that was fun. I tried to love it. I think I may or may not have even started to like it.

say whhhha?

Remember the time that I was playing football and wrecked my knee? Well, over the last 6 or so months I have been trying to run again. I've been running on the treadmill, I've been running outside. I've been stretching. I've been doing EVERYTHING that the Surgeon said to do.

It hurt. I couldn't run fast. Sad day. I signed up to play in my high school alumni basketball tournament Dec 27th. I was really nervous. What if I couldn't actually play. I was doing lay ups, jump shots. I was running. Running, cutting, and pivoting.

My knee is still recovering from that day.

I'm pretty sure that it's safe to say that I am done running. I am done trying to become a runner. For now anyways. I am going to stick to spinning. Spinning 5 days a week. Mixed with a little aqua aerobics.

I am done forcing something that is not running. So, to all those of you this new years season that have made running goals. I am excited for you. I am excited to hear about the progress you're making. And. About how you feel about your upcoming races. While all ya'll are running. I'll be spinning.
