I was recently asked to guest blog for the Wimbledon Clinics about why I run and the impact that running and knee injury has had on my life. Below is an excerpt from the article with a link to the full thing. Have a read and let me know what you think.
To be able to understand the impact that knee pain had on my life you really need to know why I run in the first place. Once you will understand this you will be able to appreciate the full impact of someone telling me that I need to reduce the amount of running that I do, that my knee will never get better and that I need to use orthotics for the rest of my life. I am 38 and I was devastated at this news. To some this may sound like an over-reaction, but I guess it is akin to any form of addict being told they have to go cold turkey.
