Off my feet these days, waiting for the knee to mend. Frustrated and content at once. The big run is nearly a year away, so the thing is to heal adequately. Even the Kenyans ‘fatten up’ in the off-season. I have so much free time these days, no hour or two needed for running, no need for several hours to get psyched up for that hour or two of running. Even a beer before dinner. During periods like this, I’m reminded just how dedicated and devoted runners – and other endurance athletes – are. Amazing.
