The only reason i began running this summer was to help our son, you know, easy, 10-12 minutes per mile, one, two miles at most.
When he joined the Cross-Country team in August, i continued running two to three miles – three times a week – because the running was pain-free. The reason i stopped running was simple. It was painful.
Wanted to try one last ditch thing to eradicate chronic right ankle/calf pain.
i planned (and was excited to know it would be a 2016 milestone) to run five miles and the pace was slow enough to remain pain-free, and just enjoy the privilege.

Walked out to the mailbox like i do every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and began walking (instead of running). After the first mile, began a slow jog which lasted two miles and included a break or two to stretch.
Walked the final mile home.
Time will tell if the freakish, sometimes debilitating pain will raise it’s ugly head.
Such is our life whether we live like we mean it or not.
