Finding the Groove

I've been away from the blog for almost a month so I figured I should post a little tidbit just to let the few of you that read this rag know that I am still around, still running, and working on finding the groove for the upcoming running year.

It's been a very interesting 8 weeks for me as I have been sick enough to be miserable since Sept 16, but not quite sick enough to shut everything down.  I finally went to the doctor for steroids and antibiotics 5 weeks into this stuff and while they seemed to do the trick within hours, I have spent the last 3 weeks dealing with the effects of an allergic reaction to the meds.

I am about 85% healthy at this point and it has occurred to me that this may be as good as it gets.  So sticking with training is what I've been doing and what I will continue to do.  Things could certainly be worse for me, so I will embrace the 85% and run through the 15% yet not occupy anything other than my running shoes.

Speaking of shoes, I have been wearing the Brooks Pure Project Grit more and more and I am really enjoying them.  As soon as my budget allows, I will be picking up a pair of the road shoe counterpart, The Flow, I believe.  I hope to post more of a review soon.

For now, back to push ups and mom duty!


  1. Sorry you have been so sick, great training through sickness! Keep up the strong work!

  2. Keep getting stronger, my friend! It's all about doing what you can, as I so learned last weekend :)

    Btw...I gave my Flows an original two thumbs up and now like them even more-just sayin!
