Interesting Story
I've hardly ever been healthy during my running career. I've had a collapsed lung, dislocated SI joint, ruptured Baker's cyst, bursitis on my knee and hip, torn plantar, stress fracture, Morton's neuroma, torn ACL, SI joint dislocations, torn ligaments in my back, herniated disk and a pinched nerve in my back. All these came from just running. I never gave up and look at me now.
