I'm famous!!!

Well, OK, maybe not famous, but definitely (probably) semi-famous...

I wrote a post a couple weeks ago where I told the story of how I got to be a runner. I got the inspiration to do this from Confessions Of A Runner podcast #13. After I wrote the post, I dropped a line to Jodi to give her a summary of the post, and to thank her for the podcast.

Fast forward to today--I'm driving to work listening to COAR #16. At the end of the 'cast, she read some excerpts from my email, and mentioned my blog. WHOOHOO! I'm famous, I tells ya!!!

I guess you had to be there. But it did feel cool to hear her read it, and she even laughed at a couple of the funny comments I dropped in. Anyway, if you haven't checked out Confessions (the podcast and/or the website) it's definitely worth a look/listen.

Oh yeah, and I'm back to regular running now. I've done 3 runs of 3 miles per day, and I have a 5K coming up on Saturday (race report to follow). Wish me luck!

Until next time, run strong, my friends...

Very cool, Jim! Both on the podcast and on the running! Well done! Can't wait to hear how you do Saturday.

I am still on injured reserve and not feeling any better. I go for an MRI of my right lower leg next Tuesday. I think if I were an animal... I would have chewed it off by now from the pain. LOL

It was worth it though.

Speaking of famous... I had my picture up in the Post Office one time.... errr... nevermind.

Ah, the old picture in the post office--that's where I recognize you from, Rick!!! HA HA HA...

Sorry to hear about the pain. Hope the MRI shows that nothing serious is wrong and that you can get back to running soon. Let me know how it goes, and I'll be praying for you!

Did you run your 5K? Inquiring minds want to know. Hehe.

I don't think I will be back to running anytime soon. Nothing diagnosed, I just am in quite a bit of pain and have a *feeling* something is more wrong than I realize.

Have a great week!
