A fucking running machine!

For the last couple of months I've been hitting a wall after just 15min
running.  I've been running (or jogging) for over half my life, and I am
pretty sure I know myself - that wall was something else.

That something being, of course, MS.  But the last few weeks I've had weird
shit in my thighs and backside - pains and twitching muscles - that I have
learnt to interpret as recovering nerves.  And, finally, it seems to be paying
off.  The last few runs didn't end with the same strange feeling of complete
exhaustion (not unlike the feeling that forces me to nap at random times).  So
today I increased my distance by a block...

...no problemo :o)

OK, a block may not seem much, but after months of being stuck, it's a sign.

Yay.
