Pobre Pata

This past week I ran 13.33 miles, more than what my training suggested. After my Wednesday run, I experienced some mild pain on my left upper thigh. I didn't think much of it and ruled it as a normal case of sore muscles. The next day, I still felt a little discomfort but again nothing too alarming.

After my 5 mile run that evening, the pain became more severe. It was at that point that I knew something was wrong. I've been very blessed to not come under any major injury, so I was a bit freaked that this was it.

Later on that night after a couple of stretch exercises, I rubbed some Bengay on the affected area. It was actually my first time trying Bengay and I was satisfied with the results. The pain minimized within minutes and I was able to get a good nights rest.

Yesterday, I dedicated my run to Meg Menzies. She was an avid runner who was killed by a drunk driver while out for her morning run on January 13th, 2014. An event was created on facebook urgin…

Cheers to 2013

What an amazing year 2013 has been. I had the opportunity to travel, finish my first mud run, meet new people, discover a love for reading, experience personal growth and so much more.

So let's rock 2014!
