The past few blogs have not been about mountain running, but mountain running has taught me how to approach this life climb. Yesterday I went under anesthesia to biopsy my bladder. I’ve had some post running blood in my urine, prompting the evaluation that led to finding a couple of spots on my bladder.

I think about how I would have approached and dealt with this 3 years ago, before running changed my whole way of thinking. The world is bigger and I am much smaller. Life and our world is precious. And it’s freeing to know it’s not all about me.

I have big plans for 2015, my goal race is going to be Tor Des Geants. Ill have to have a fair amount of luck to get in, but I think its gonna happen. I won’t know that until February. Right now it is just a day at a time. Currently, I am not running, I haven’t in 2 weeks which feels like 2 years at times, but I’m making the most of it, and hopeful I will get to start training again soon.

In the meantime, I await the biopsy results. I should know monday, the results, and go from there. Im ready to slip my running shoes back on! ...soon

Best of luck Lori! You are an inspiration to us all no matter how things turn out. Hopefully the few weeks off will give your body some nice rest time and allow itself to rebuild those used muscles even stronger.
