Back in the Saddle

December 7, 2013 was my slowest 5K ever (and probably my coldest as well).

But neither of those details really truly matter.


Because I ran.

In a race.

15 weeks after my accident.

10 days after finally returning to the world of running.

For me, it was a celebration of healing and gratefulness for the ability to run.

A far cry from the beginning of 2013 where I celebrated turning 40 by running my first marathon...

but no less important.

It will be a while before I'm able to run longer distances, but I know how to work towards that goal:

By lacing up my running shoes and putting one foot in front of the other.

As we wrap up 2013 and look forward towards 2014, I hope that you continue to #RunTeacherRun.

I know I will!


  1. So proud of you!! I'm going to #runteacherrun with all I've got this upcoming year!!! :)
