About a month or so ago, I was asked, how long did it take you to get in shape and running again?

My answer: 2 years- Marking the approximate time I successfully rerouted my course to begin rebuilding towards a permanent stance on the track

Reality:  About 12 years to 2009 …Yep- Given my age (28 years old), 12 years seems absurd.  Then again, when you factor the issues concerning the track world and their impact on each athlete from Cali to NY, 12 years is normal…

…along with the injuries

…and unskilled coaches

…and faulty track programs

…and lack of funding

It’s all normal.  It’s all good right?
