Over the sunny weekend I ran into my neighbor/friend Karen who was walking home after a run. She had knee braces on. Her knees are pretty shot. She is one tough cookie. Prior to the bad knees she was a regular in the elite field of women at Bloomsday. She said she just had to get out because she needed to “process” things. I think you need to be a runner to understand the concept…but I couldn’t have agreed with her more. Pain or no pain….running is therapeutic.
