Runner in Progress: First Flyte
I went for a run today. It was my first run in over seven weeks, my longest break from running since I started seven years ago.
On June 23rd I was seen by the surgeon at the Wound Clinic. My incision (read the back story here) was still open and growing “bad” tissue, which they burnt off. The good news is it’s no longer infected. The bad news is I was left with a fresh open wound all over again. I go back later this week. If things aren’t healing well I’ll be scheduled for an exploratory surgery.
I was suppose to start training for the Wineglass Marathon today. Last week I added myself to the defer wait list for the half marathon. I’m not so sure a full marathon is in the cards for me this fall. I also backed out of the Virginia Beach Rock ‘n’ Roll half in September that I was suppose to run for BibRave.
Because of this, or perhaps in spite of it, I went for a run today. It felt extraordinary significant and yet insignificant at the same time. I only went two miles. But I ran today.
