Eight weeks ago when I started this spring’s edition of Run for God at my church, I knew I’d be in the walking program. (Last year I started on the 5-K running team and had to drop out halfway thru due to work schedules. And joint pain.) My goal this year: start more realistically and finish. About four weeks into training I hurt my back. Then it became Stroll for God … That was about as fast as I could go. Last Saturday, when I limped into the chiropractor’s office after our practice, he took one look at my gait and told me to lay off the walking for a couple of weeks.
Fortunately, swimming makes me feel like a normal human again and not a hermit crab. So, Swim for God it is until the doc releases me to walk again.
