Crazylegs Classic 2012

After a break of several years I was excited to run the Crazylegs Classic again this year! It's an awesome 8K in Madison that finishes in Camp Randall Stadium. They also offer a two mile walk. All proceeds support Badger Athletics. As a Badger graduate and athlete (rowing) I love this chance to run on campus and support my school.

This year was super fun as I ran with my friend Sara! Race day weather is usually tough. This year was cold and a little wet, but we planned/layered well. We got a lot of comments on our awesome striped socks! :-)

We ran the race in 49:55, reaching our goal of 10-minute/mile splits or less. This was huge for me as I'd been taken off running for the prior year. But, with persistent PT, rest and prayer I was able to rebuild some issues with my body, allowing me to find my feet again.

Question for You:
- How have you successfully come back to sport after an injury or life issue forced you to take a break?
