    Finally got my referral to physical therapy today. One of the men's sprinters at BYU works in the office, and was massaging the IT Band. He was shocked at how tight it was. I see the surgeon in 10 days.

I am going to see a surgeon, so hopefully he can write it up in such a way that my insurance will cover surgery right off the bat.

    I'm running 3 miles twice a week without any big issues. Im nervous going longer than that but I'm going to take it slow and see if I can get up to 6 miles.

    I just saw that Tricare approved my surgery for next Wednesday. The surgeon will be doing a release on the IT Band, and cleaning up the meniscus at the same time.

    I think I'm going to dial back the miles of running I put in going forward, and try to do most of my cardio in low impact training like cycling, elliptical, and rowing machines. Heavy on the cycling though.

    In the bicycling thread I read about people breaking their faces and crushing their bones. In this thread I read about people getting all sorts of operations. I think I will just give up and sit on my couch more.

    I mean there's cycling, and then there's PAC. He's a thrill seeking cynky (cyling junky).

    And yeah I went from running zero to more than 12 miles a week, which is not a great idea. I tend to be quite binary like that with a lot of things.

    You should know that no one on this board exhibits this trait, especially in thinking.

    So, from 0000 to 1100 miles?

    I'm sure that I've mentioned that Ryan and Sara Hall moved to our town about 5 years ago. About a year and a half ago they adopted 4 girls from Ethiopia, who are currently between 8 and 15 years old. They are very sweet girls and have done really well with acclimating to US culture. The Halls are great parents by all accounts.

    Over the last year they have become more and more involved in the local running community. Sara frequently does local fun runs, either using them as her planned workouts or running with her girls. This season Ryan functioned as assistant cross country coach for his oldest daughter's high school team. In doing so, he coached one of my good friend's son to a 5th place finish at the state XC meet.

    A couple of weeks ago they announced a new project that they are undertaking along with a high school track coach - The Redding Distance Project, a local running team designed to get area kids involved in running and to help create a positive running culture in the area. Kids from grades 3-12 are invited to participate.

    My 16 year old son went to the first meeting yesterday. Ryan basically ran the program on day one. Once they finished the orientation talk, Ryan took the high school kids, the high school coach took the junior high kids, and Sara took the rest.

    They are going to meet twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays. Mondays are for form and speedwork, Thursdays are for strength work, at least during this time of year.

    Yesterday, after a warm-up, he focused on having them run 100 meter sprints in small groups. He videotaped each one of them. He then pulled them each aside individually and reviewed the video and gave them pointers on their running form. Based on what my son told me, it was excellent feedback, as he gave him 2-3 things to start working on right away. This morning he sent out the workouts for the rest of the week for the high school kids.

    I've got to know them a fair bit over the last couple of years. They are incredible people. Very genuine and sincere. Always more than willing to take time to talk to people, young and old. And always willing to pitch in wherever they are needed. Ryan is often seen raking the long jump pit or officiating high jump at the junior high and high school meets, and Sara has run the shot put and discuss on more than one occasion.

    I can't say enough good things about the Halls. And what an opportunity for my son and all of his running friends to be a part of this running program. Good people doing good things.

    That's a cool story about the Halls, bg. I went to their blog and they seem like excellent people. Are the four girls from the same original family? I have immense respect for people who adopt kids from such difficult circumstances.

    Josh Rohatinksy and his wife work out at my gym (they recently moved, so probably won't any longer). His 8 year old son ran a 20 minute 5k recently at the school race. He has also ran 6 minute miles with his dad. Josh also confronted a 65 year old guy at the gym who he thought was hitting on his wife. It was super awkward, old guys say dumb shit sometimes (See BYU71). That's all I got.

    USA running seems to be enjoying a renaissance and I would put Ryan Hall in the forefront of it. Great opportunity for your son and the kids in that area.

    Smallest singlet and shorts I own, period. Calf sleeves depending on the distance. Maybe a sweatshirt for the first quarter mile if it is super cold.
