I sprained my ankle when I was about 20 and it took 6 weeks to feel better. At the time I had to use a crutch. I was a mess. So now I have to fight through another sprain, although this one is not nearly as bad. I am still remined that it is not right when I move wrong. It is just a dull pain but it reminds me of what I need to do. I would still run with the sprain again, it was worth it to compete in the run.
I learned that Robert Massaroni, a local Tang Soo Do instructor died at the finish line to the Broad Street Run. The cause of death is unknown. I feel very badly for him and his family on what should have been a great day. My sincerest sympathies go out to the family of this truly remarkable man.
