At The Races

Long story short: Started running in Feb. 2007, got fast for an old chick but at the end of March 2012, the legs started acting wonky.  The next 2 years were all about this mystery condition.  My running deteriorated and from Oct. 2013 – May 2014, I stopped running altogether.  As of this edit (November 2014), I’m officially back in the saddle: a beginner again, excited to see what evolves.

April 10 Edit:
Couple days before I was to fly to Cali for Carlsbad 5000, I went to the Emergency Room because my legs had stopped letting me run.  They kept me in the hospital for 8 nights to figure out the source.  Eventually, I had a liver operation though nobody was sure if that was the  cause.  (this is where it starts)
