5 Update: The Scoop
I've thought a lot about whether I should post the below. It is with no small amount of reservation that I post this:
Some people might know that I was recovering from illness & injury. Well, that was true.
What I didn't say at the time was that I've been dealing with a totally different, ongoing illness that has hampered my my running to a large degree. It's not something life-threatening, nor was it caused by anything specific that I did.
Please understand that I don't wish to go into details or answer questions about it, as it is a private concern, but I thought it was only fair to explain what was going on with me in a general way, as there are probably a lot of people wondering why I've disappeared off the face of the online running world (Twitter, Facebook, DailyMile, etc.). I'm doing what I can to get better, but it's a slow process.
The reason I haven't disclosed my situation until now is that I wasn't ready to deal with other people's reactions or curious questions. Furthermore, I don't want anyone's pity.
I don't know how this is going to affect my running/wellness business. It was just getting started, as I just launched it only a few months ago. So, it looks like I'll be putting it on hold for the time-being.
In the meanwhile, hang in there & stay tuned. Just because I'm not currently running doesn't mean that I don't have thoughts on running to post here. :)
