It has been almost three years since my THR, and I am running the Half-Wit-Half Marathon Trail Run August 13. This will be my first race since surgery. All I want to do is make the cut off, so I can finish. I have been training on the AT south of Boiling Springs, PA. It is all because of this site, that I am even running again. The testimonies, the encouragement, and the sheer determination of all the folks who post here got me to try running again. Thank you. After thirty years of running, it was really hard to quit. Now I am out there again, not as far and not as fast, but out there on the trail again. Topping it off, I turn sixty five this week, so the race is going to be my birthday present to myself.
