First Post Injury 5k…

I have been putting this off FOREVER! I never realized how difficult it would be to return to the “running community,” when you’re starting from ground zero. I mean, it’s one thing to have never run a 5k before, but to have once had the ability to run them every day and then not be able to at all…that’s a different story. Or is it?

No, not really. It really isn’t. What I found out was that all of this was really just in my head. I mean, I train people everyday how to restart or return from injury, yet, when it comes to myself, I was beating myself up. Like, really Felicia? So, finally I had to tell myself, #byeFelicia, and I had to do what I had to do.

That included registering for a race and just doing it! Who knew that just by doing that alone, that a fire would “SPARKLE!” I’ve rekindled my joy in running, well, jogging for now, but I’ve found my joy again and I am so happy that I got over myself! I’m looking forward to building up my mileage again (this time much slower), and hopefully I’ll be able to complete a few more races along the way.

In the meantime, I’d like to share with you some video footage from last week and I’d love to know if you run or have returned to running from an injury in the comment section. Chat with you soon!
