I'd like to start writing more about my life in general, and describe some of the things I ponder as I run. As I'm writing this blog (August 17, 2016), I'm celebrating a full year of the end of an inpatient hospitalization. I won't go into any details in a public forum, but suffice to say, the last time I'd been hospitalized for similar health issues was in 2007, so at that point I had been hospital-free for over eight years.
Now, one year later, I'm hoping to manage an even longer hospital-free streak. On Monday, my doctor said she's seen people with my condition stay out of the hospital for 30+ years, but I'm not going to think ahead that far.
So, as I continue this blog, I'd like to share some health resources that have helped keep me out of the hospital and remain a (mostly) functioning member of society in my roles as a teacher, husband, friend, family member, father, and church-goer.
I'll frame many of my posts in the context of running, but not all of them.
Thanks for reading.
