The first third of 2014 can be summed up as ‘Injury Plagued’. I started off 2014 still recovering from injuries suffered during a bike accident in December. These residual bike accident injuries (strained knee ligament & dislocated shoulder) coupled with running overuse injuries (toe stress fracture & Morton’s Neuroma) led to Achilles Pain, which opened me up for a month-long yoga immersion. Races in this period included my first snowshoe race, my first quadrathlon (bike, run, ski, snowshoe), & my second Boston Marathon. Given my circumstance of ill repair, it was a good 1st third!
