It’s been about 3 months since my surgery. The recovery has been longer and harder than I anticipated. For the longest time, walking was extremely painful and I found it difficult to stand and balance. I was limping and in pain regularly. Today, some days are okay and others just painful.
I’ve been taking baby steps as my leg permits. Some days are bad and I think I won’t be able to ever run again and then there are days that I am pushing the boundaries with leaps. Today was one of those days.
I made it around the block today and I was thrilled. I’ve run many marathons and always felt that huge sense of accomplishment. Today, making it around the block was an accomplishment that left me feeling hopeful.
I will keep pushing myself and fighting my way back and maybe the door will be permanent closed and maybe, just maybe I will be running Boston side-by-side with Kenny AlcosibaKevin AlcosibaKyle Alcosiba by my side as planned.
I’m grateful for every step. I’m grateful for new challenges. I’m so grateful that I have been forced to slow down so I can see Jesus in everything, the big, little, happy and painful; His fingerprints are all over me and my race isn’t over….. maybe just a new goal and a new finish line.
