Hold on Loosely

A bunch of months ago, I saw a colleague and runner friend at work. She works in a different building so, even before COVID-19, we don’t see each other more than a few times a year. She looked the usual picture of both fitness and professionalism as we exchanged hellos. “Have you run lately?” I asked. She paused: “I haven’t run at all since I broke my back.”

She was pounding the pavement a few months ago when an abrupt pain in her back stopped her short. She didn’t know that an early diagnosis of osteopenia had become osteoporosis so advanced that a vertebra had collapsed. She experienced no paralysis or other long-term nerve damage, but she said she was told she could never run again. A rupture of normalcy that might as well be a death.

I’m thankful for the 9 years I’ve had running. And fortunately I’ve never had an injury that’s sidelined me for more than a couple of weeks. Others in the club have had to take longer hiatuses. My friend’s experience delivered a bitter dose of perspective.

The coach’s main job is 20% technical and 80% inspirational.

 --- Franz Stampfl, renowned coach who pioneered interval training

Running is like mouthwash; if you can feel the burn, it’s working.

 --- Brian Tackett (no info on him, just this clever quote)

Get going.  Get up and walk if you have to, but finish the damned race.

 --- Ron Hill to Jerome Drayton during the 1970 Boston Marathon
