The Brooks 'Ghost' running shoes served me well all winter. I battled the cold lung syndrome for a time, then ended up on the treadmill all winter down at the Double Eagle. Sure was nice to get back outside once spring arrived.
I added a mile every month. In March, running 5 miles every other day, I had a bout with splints in the left shin, and had to lay off for a while. Stayed on the stationary bike for a few weeks to lessen the impact, then took a two week break from everything to get healed.
By June 1st I hit 8 miles every other day, and feeling good. Those Brooks shoes are the bomb!
Now that I am where I want to be, I have to say....running would be a great, truly wonderful thing.....if it weren't for all that...running.
