      I have a tumor on one of my ovaries, so they are going to remove both of them. Medical menopause, here I come!

      So glad you gave it a try. It's been a really tough time for you both emotionally and physically. You did great and were smart to stop when you were in pain. Don't give up on marathons Diane. You'll get there

    alright Clearing the cobwebs 3 mi 00:32 10:33 pace

      good to hear you dont have fracture. the fact that you are thinking about the impact of wether to run or not shows you would not be doing it for selfish motives. run knowing you have people in your life that love and support you and you them!

      That run downtown on 4/11 destroyed my legs. I think I tried to get one too many runs out of my Brooks--should have switched to the new shoes! I was worried that I had a stress fracture in my hip again, but after 2 doctor visits and 2 massages, they have assured me that it is tissue damage. I have to rest and let it heal, and it's making me crazy.

      I'm glad it's not a stress fracture. You gotta be more careful about your old shoes. I got a lot of twinges in my ankles that really freaked me out before I realized it was just time to get new shoes. Take care
