Stressssss Fracture

Yep. 2 fractures in my right foot. I ran for 2 months in denial for up to 67 miles/week like an idiot (and in pain). My last event was Dude, where's the trail 50K...where I ran until I couldn't run anymore...and then walked the last 5 miles to my slowest finish ever. Hat's off to Sophia and Greg and Chad and Kurt for coddling me. (I love you guys).

I've spent the last 4 full weeks of non-running-hell in limbo. Not pissed. Not unhappy. Not whining. Just resigned to the fact that I can't run.

Oh well...it could be worse. I could be a KC Chiefs fan.

I'll come back stronger than ever. Not just "Bad Ben." But Bad Motherfucker Ben.

Sorry to hear this, Ben.

Maybe our bodies NEED beer. Interesting thought, considering I'm about to give it up until WS is done.

Very noble of you, but...Why?
My fastest 100s (down to 22:04) were done with beer during training and the night prior.

I should note that my downtime due to running injury in the past has always released the bad motherfucker in me when I came out of it. It's quite the phenomenon. So, I have no doubt that your very own bad motherfucker will emerge.

SF is no good, dude, sorry to read about that :(

Sorry to hear about your SF. I came back from one myself about 14 months ago, having run on it for awhile also. I did come back stronger than ever though, and am sure you will too! Best wishes for the new year and speedy healing. --Alex

Excellent blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips?
