January 2008 through May 2011 were the toughest years of my running life, I had so many major injuries that significantly reduced the number of days that I ran during these years. A quick run-down of the major ones:
• 1/4/08 – Fell off the Ladder while shoveling the garage roof
• 2/4/09 – Massive Migrane initially thought to be a stroke or Bell’s Pallsy
• 2/10/10 – Injured Right Knee playing racquetball that eventually ended up with…
• 5/17/11 – Arthroscopic Surgery Right Knee
Yes, there were many more “minor” things that kept slowing me down, but those were the ones that seemed to hammer on the body the most.
