Pain

Mar 22, 2012 - 2 comments

Want to go out for a walk, but my shins are soooo painful. Dad always dreamed of doing a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail but his illness dashed those plans. In recent years, as I watched him battle neurological disease and cancer and seen his ability to fulfill his dream slip away, I've thought: "I'll do the Trail in his honor." How can I ever do a 2,174 mile trip---over mountains---when I'm left in crippling pain from a 1/2 mile stroll on flat land? :(

Thanks Doodler. I forced myself out for a 0.6 mile walk this evening. As for the shins, I've had it ever since I trained for that half marathon in '06/'07. It is, in large part, the reason I gave up exercise and they flare up every single time I've tried to resume a more active lifestyle. I've seen several doctors who have not been able to offer any relief. :(
