It hurts!

My neck was so sore this morning and, after yesterday’s run, I knew getting out there would help so I headed out for another 40 minutes.

And it hurt like hell for the first 15 minutes – just like it did yesterday. Every step I took shot referred pain into my left arm that made it feel like it was being torn off.

But, I toughed it out past those 15 minutes (you can do anything once you’ve run a marathon) and was rewarded with a better afternoon.

Get out there and run people. It’s this century’s magic elixir.

It really is magic no matter what isn’t it Mark?! You are my superman yet again, out there facing your pain, embracing it and not letting it slow you down…well even if it slows you, it sure ain’t stoppin’ ya! :)
