The last 18 months have challenged my identity as a runner. As I've dealt with the pain of hallux rigidus in my right foot and recurrent numbness in my left foot, there were many times I questioned whether I would truly ever think of myself as a runner again.
I am relieved and grateful to be able to say that I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I finally see myself as a runner again!
