No (real) news

There hasn't been any declared decisions about my shoulder yet. The orthopedist wants the orthopedist surgeon to decide. It looks like the decision is leaning toward surgery. It depends on how the positioning of my shoulder is in this next 10 days I guess. I have a better splint and I am to do no range of motion.



I'm doing ok. I know that my value, esteem, etc does not come from running and triathlon. But I also know that it's going to be tough not participating in races and swims and century rides with the people that I had planned to. I don't get to show how much I have improved at everything.

Well, next year I'll be even stronger.

This weekend I was suppose to run the 1/2 marathon at Grandma's. Good luck to Steve, Pharmie, Miss Allycat, Lifetime Run Club members and others racing this weekend

  1. We'll miss you in Duluth! I just heard that they're closing part of 35 in Duluth secondary to a big accident. Reopening is yet to be determined. Maybe you'll be glad you're missing the traffic!

  2. Oh No! I am so sorry to hear about what happened! I was looking forward to meeting you at pigman. But, i know you'll be back better than ever next year. I know how frustrating it is. I missed a lot a while back too. It's tough but it only makes you stronger!

  4. I hope everything works out...let us know what the surgeon says.

    P.S. I've had shoulder problems since high school football and I opted out of surgery way back when. I've had chronic injuries since...mostly when I push myself a little too hard (while tired and getting sloppy with form) on upper body exercises.

  5. The hardest part of all will be sitting on the sidelines, but you will infact be so strong next year and will knock the socks off of anyone you were going to swim/bike/run with this year. Happy healing! :(
