I'm a runner that bakes or a baker that runs, neither of which come naturally to me (nor are they my day-job). On March 31, 2012--I broke my knee cap in at least three pieces. This required surgery and a screw to repair. I was out of commission for 2 months. Obviously, I couldn't run. I also couldn't drive or go to work. I was stuck on the couch for those months.It was not fun. During that time, I vowed to myself that I was going to come back fitter and stronger than ever. No excuses. I started running again in August of that year and haven't looked back. I'm fitter and stronger than I've ever been. I take adversity on its head and don't look back.
I've come in first overall at a local 5k and have age-group placed in other local 5ks.
