Please, Runners, Be Patient With Your Injuries
The other night, I had a dream. I was running with friends. It was my first run back after an extended break due to injury. At the very beginning of the run, before I even had a chance to rejoice at being back at it, I heard a loud pop when my left foot hit the ground and felt excruciating pain in my knee. I hit the ground and writhed in pain. I woke up, my heart pounding.
