When I got injured about 10 weeks ago, I was sure I would be out of this race... after a few days of proper rest, I was diligent about my rehab and spent a lot of time focused on proper recovery and training. I have a lot of amazing people in my corner. Amazing physical therapists, surgeon and the best rehab facility in Palmer to help me get back to good race shape. I was determined to have fun and enjoy the race and NOT re-injure myself - I prevailed with a Sub 3 hour race which came as a HUGE surprise as it was my first time back to running outside and running over 3 miles since my injury. I am very proud to be a part of the #TopoTeam - without these shoes, I absolutely would NOT have recovered so well. It was a great experience and I'm happy to report that I am back completely injury free!
PS- posting photos of myself is rare for many reasons - going way out of my comfort zone to share these images, so thank you to all my friends who are helping me get through that as well @shewanderer @runlikeagirl_ca #seemeRLAG #terraventures #teamactivesoles #lavaman2017
