I am having surgery tomorrow to correct a deviated septum.  While the surgery is minor, it is painful – worse than that – I am not allowed to run for two weeks or cycle for a week.  The upside for me is that my deviated septum has gotten so bad that it restricts my ability to breathe in while I am doing distance running or cycling on hills or sprints.

I scheduled my surgery for two days after I ran the Georgetown, Colorado to Idaho Springs, CO half marathon. I finished in 1 hour 46 minutes and 26 seconds, not bad for someone who turned 68 this past April.  I am looking forward to an even better time once I can run again.  I am thinking of doing the Denver Half in October, before returning to Austin.

I will most likely not be blogging but I look forward to receiving your posts.  Endeavor to persevere!
