Harmony 5k/Run to Read Marathon/Shin Splints

     Where have I been?  Well I got shin splints and had to stop running for a while.  I had been having some pain but was not sure what it was from. 

     When I ran the Harmony Silvester 5k on New Years Eve I made it two miles when my shins started to really hurt.  I walked and ran the last mile to a 22:36 finish.  Not bad, but I was on pace to finish in 21+.

     A few days later I was at the Read to Run Half Marathon.  This time I only got in a mile before the pain started.  I tried to run through it.  It just got worse.  At mile 5 I made the decision to quit the race.  I hated to do it.  But this way I would not do anymore damage to my legs.

     I started running again this week.
4 miles
4.5 miles
4 miles
7.5 miles
     Pretty good runs with no pain.  It feels good to be back.  I missed running a lot, but I had to take care of my body.
     In other running news, my gear for Team Emerg-C came in.  It is...bright.  I love it!  Also GU energy gels is again a sponsor of Team Brunazzi for 2014!
