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!

Oh my goodness, Chaz, what a beautiful comment and a perfect thing to hear. Thanks you! I was on the phone with BF yesterday and he was being his amazing self. As soon as I hung up the phone I burst into tears. Then I said out loud to myself, "Don't say it", then "Don't even think it". And then I realized that my emotions hit before the thoughts ever had a chance. This is super deeply ingrained but I am definitely taking steps and I'm grateful for your presence with me on this journey. Thank you.

Yeah it's kind of a big thing! And to be clear, there's no formal marriage happening, lol. Commitment without the government recognition, because we're both kind of anti-government (hence moving to another country where the government is more in line with our social and political beliefs). And no worries, there's definitely tons of research going into this, on visas, living costs, schools for kiddo, job prospects, health care, all that. I'm in plenty of expat forums asking questions and reading to find out other things I need to learn more about. The move is a year away but I know this year is going to go by fast. Thanks for the blog love, Chas!
