new news



Sorry, Giant Wine Glass,
you'll have to wait.

Earlier this week I met with an anti-coagulation specialist and heard the best news I've heard in a few weeks: I'm okay to run! (I'm also clear to drink moderate amounts of wine, in case you were as concerned as me about me never having purple teeth again.)

Additionally, instead of 6-12 months of warfarin (a blood thinner), I'll only be on it for three months. After I'm drug-free for a month, I'll need to have some addtional blood work done. I'll meet with the specialist again after those results come in to discuss long-term treatment.

But enough about that, let's talk about RUNNING!

Now that I'm officially in the clear, I already have two races on my radar, including the Trail Mix 50K Relay and the Get in Gear Half Marathon (to run with Ann)! I was so excited about the prospect of being able to run again that I failed to fully appreciate the fact that these races are 3 and 4 weeks away, respectively.

I plan to use the first week in April to gently remind my body that it's a runner and then go from there. Maybe this will be a running blog again!

P.S.- The picture is from here but you can probably find it on Amazon if you want to buy it for me.
