this last week, i ran along the country dirt and stone roads with a couple of my teammies.
we had performed some heavy manual labor demolishing walls and floors in a church-owned apartment all day, but i still felt a burst of dedication and desire to push through exhaustion for a run after we finished our work. though i encountered some moments of potential physical and mental defeat, i kept running. i didn't stop once. and, in the end, i ran a 5k in a decent amount of time [32min]. it was the furthered and longest i've run since my surgery. it was also my first time running in skinny jeans. so, it was really a double victory experience. 🏃🏻😝💪🏻 #postsurgerycomeback
