I see my triceps meeting my posterior deltoids. I see the blur of the background as I leave it all behind me. I hear the rhythmic worship music blasting from my shoulder speakers. I feel my sweat-plastered shirt sticking to my sports bra … and I am proud. Because I am four months post-op from knee surgery, and I am doing 11:45 minute-miles for my Portland to Coast Team Toe Jammin’ #2100 … and our women’s team placed 6th!!!
