In a little over 4 hours I will be running -- well, actually walking and shuffling -- the Atlantic City Half Marathon!

I cannot wait.  I can't believe it's here and what I've been through.  It's been over two months since my last post, since I was officially told no running.

So what did I do?  I listened.  I walked.  I shuffled. a lot.  Got hoka one ones. life changing. figured out i could do the galloway method by walking and shuffling.  walk/shuffled walt disney world during our august trip. got back into training. brick reservoir, bike path, allaire statr park trails.  

when once i had a 7:30 something race pace and 9 something training pace ... i had to live with a 15-17 pace now ... built back up to 12-14.  today we'll see.  play it smart. listen.


  1. Hi-
    I came across your post. I am a runner that just had back to back inferior pubic ramus SFX and just found out I have osteoporosis too. How's it going for you? Any tips. I am losing my mind with all the conflicting internet info running is good, running is bad. I too was thinking that walk/run maybe a good idea. How have you changed your training?

    Any advice would be so helpful.


    1. Hi Helen!
      My best advice is to listen to your doctor. You'll read and hear a lot on the internet, and even if you read about me, for example, this is just MY experience. Every person is different, and your doctor, or team of doctors, should be able to individualize treatment for you. In my case, my team includes orthopedic surgeons as well as an endocrinologists. Be patient, be positive, know that you are going to get better, and you will get there!! Happy healing!
