I think I am finally, after more than a year, getting over this injury. It has been a most frustrating experience. Having one of the worst injuries a runner can get and having very few places to turn to get help. Most doctors are completely unfamiliar with this type of injury. The worst part is that resting didn’t seem to make it any better and none of my doctors knew of a treatment. I ended up talking with a doctor in San Francisco, who helped find someone to conduct a procedure to help alleviate the pain. This was several weeks ago, and despite some lingering tightness everything is finally starting to feel normal. Know we will see what happens when I am able to start training again. If the pain comes back, then I will likely be heading out to California for surgery and another few months of recoveryL At least I have a path moving forward and there seems to be light at the end of this very dark tunnel. I’m hoping that the running gods will treat me more kindly in 2013; no matter what I will have a newfound appreciation simply for the ability to get out and move.
