Chas' Info

An established master's runner in my late 40s and early fifties, I found myself challenged with severe pain in both legs several years ago. So I cut down on my mileage and quit racing. My last race was a 5K the Hendersonville Classic in 2011. Two years went by with numerous doctors visits. They all started saying the same thing. Your cartilage around your hip joints are minimal. One hip replacement (hip re-surfacing in July 2013) later, and I'm ready to push myself again. Long-distance ...
An established master's runner in my late 40s and early fifties, I found myself challenged with severe pain in both legs several years ago. So I cut down on my mileage and quit racing. My last race was a 5K the Hendersonville Classic in 2011. Two years went by with numerous doctors visits. They all started saying the same thing. Your cartilage around your hip joints are minimal. One hip replacement (hip re-surfacing in July 2013) later, and I'm ready to push myself again. Long-distance running is part of who I am but I'll have to stay with short races now, my new norm. I've gained 25 pounds since 2011. I joined Sparkspeople to track weight and calories in 2007. Now, once again I'm back in 2014 as I believe an essential part of running fast is in managing one's weight. I'm staying with my username, as almost every morning run and sometimes in the evening, I'm truly running with deer.
My current goals are:

improving my speed for the local 5k and to encourage friends and other runners along the way!

Dear Runswithdeer fella...that is by far one of the nicest things I've ever had written about me. Thank you for your friendship :) I appreciate it very much!

Great analogy on your comment on my race report. One of my friends ran who is a bit of a perfectionist. He realized he was 1/2 mile short as he was approaching the finish so instead of rolling with it, he added a loop through the adjacent neighborhood just so he could finish over 13.1 on his Garmin. I am happy to be running again, I had stopped for a while. It sounds like you have had to overcome some challenges yourself, glad to see you are able to keep running and inspiring those around you.

Ha! You are the first to acknowledge me as LFOAR! No one else has ever used that acronym but me. That, my friend, made me smile. You have a fabulous Sunday!

Hi Chas, thanks so much for your message.

It's great to hear that you're doing so well with your resurfaced hip. How long ago did you get that done?

There seems to be a range of things that can be done so I guess it will come down to how bad it is. I'm not worrying too much. They've had a good forage around to see what's going on and I should find out in early April.

By the way - the background image on your page is pretty amazing. Where was that taken?
