Depression, Flexibility, and Aging Gracefully


From the beginning of August until about two weeks ago, I was depressed!

My running had been going downhill and not in a good way. Speeds were falling off, distances were falling off.  And I was in constant pain.

After the end of the Cleveland Marathon in May, I had planned to run
  • The Wright Patterson AFB Marathon in Dayton,
  • The Road Runner Marathon in Akron,
  • The Cleveland TowPath Marathon,
  • The Columbus Marathon and
  • Maybe one more, perhaps the Detroit Free Press,  the Florida Space Coast Marathon, or the one in Indy.
