I did OK. It didn't feel good, but I came in at the slow end of my goal.  I talked to so many people who ran their slowest race ever. The conditions were brutal, and runners were suffering out there. Looking forward to running Rehoboth, where things should be alot better!

Nike's controversial shoe will be commercially available this year
A variant of the shoe that powered the first ever sub-two-hour marathon could be yours later this year.

Did you get arthritis from all the running or ballooning?!?

What did your hot Dr say?

What is ballooning?

Neither my PCP nor the orthopedist could give me a definitive answer on that. IMO, the running contributed. He said he didn't think it would make it worse to keep running in moderation, though why run if you're in pain? There's other ways to exercise. I was also diagnosed with rotator cuff tendonitis, frozen shoulder, and plantar fibroma. Still nothing about my hands. Getting old, good times!

With all the old people on here, maybe we should do a health woes thread?

I see

Ballooning is putting on weight
