I'm a Believer & Spartan Race Giveaway

I believe I'll have a second cup ...
And more K-Tape! (Source)

I’m a believer! I am usually the one who needs proof and evidence to back up my treatments but wow, I think this K-Tape is the best thing! I wasn’t sure when she applied it on Thursday but I agreed since it couldn’t hurt. I managed to run pain free a total of 20 miles over the past 3 days with it! Then it ended. I was in the shower Monday post run and tape is peeling so I helped it along figuring it would be removed Tuesday at the appointment. Wow what a difference! I met a friend for lunch and by the end of lunch my hamstring was achy L and now walking upstairs hurts again. I have done nothing different besides remove the tape, okay yes I ran but that didn’t hurt. So I believe…K-Tape is staying!

The medical side of me knows this would not e a lone fix but combined with ART, decreasing runs and fish oil it works. Fingers crossed that reapplying with fix the issue. My plans for the week are to back off running except a couple easy runs when I coach and focusing on cross training instead. What have you fought against but been proven wrong about?



Enough of the downside of my running, who's up for pushing beyond your limits? Ever wanted to run the Spartan Race? Obstacle racing at the toughest, I mean the races have names like Beast and Death Race! Yikes, no way for me the injury prone runner, but don't worry they have beginner races too. Have you thought of running a tough obstacle race? I ran a small local mud run last year, had a blast but took it easy due to a marathon 1 week later.

I love the mission of Spartan Races...I mean what better metaphor for life!

Spartan Race is on a mission to get you active, healthy, excited about change, and return to our ancient roots where running through woods, getting dirty, and facing adversity was part of everyday life. Our events are all about challenging today’s perception of normal.
Someday I will prove my strength and do this race but for now I am giving it to one of you! Are you in for Spartan? Guess what I have a free entry to any race in the US to giveaway! Or use the link for 15% off entry
