middpro I'm not going to lie. Some days I get depressed. I'm not satisfied with my progress, and at the same time I don't have the energy to push harder. #2k15miles or busy is feeling more like bust. Today though, I remembered where I was 7.5 years ago. I was flat on my back in a hospital bed. They'd tried to give me a new #ACL in the surgery. While in there, they found my meniscus was shredded to bits. After they finished trying their best to make my knee workable again, they told me, "Your meniscus is gone. You don't have a cushion in there anymore." I remember the weeks of learning to walk again. I had lost so much muscle mass in my leg from the immobilization. I had been in the best shape of my life, and all that work was gone. The injury and surgery rank as the most extreme pain I've ever experienced...and I've experienced a lot. The psychological battle was a lost cause. I didn't want to do anything to test the leg or tempt fate. I stopped running. I never went all out in weight-lifting again. I just accepted a slightly less exciting and daring lifestyle. As the years passed, I started to run here and there, but never like before. I always told myself that chapter of my life was over. But now here I am, putting down mile after mile, day after day. I'm definitely not where I want to be, but thank God I've made it this far. I'm doing more than I ever thought I could before. And that is #progress so I can't give up now. Thank you to all of you for being a part of this journey. 16h
