Happy Friday & My Interview on Runner's Lounge Blog




And guess what? I'm the featured runner in Open Mic Friday at the Runner's Lounge! Please click on the widget above to access the interview. Thank you for those of you that have already read it and told me it's up there. You guys are so sweet!! I really enjoyed writing the interview and made me realize how much I appreciate you guys, my fellow runners, bloggers and readers. :-)

Went for a 6 miler this morning and felt pretty good. Except for the strange pain in my Achilles tendon. Well, at least, that's what I *think* it was. It was a sharp pain in the lower back of my ankle and felt it all morning since I got out of bed. I debated on running on it but decided to test it out... After a few miles, the pain subsided and felt much better. There is a dull pain there but not too bad now. Any idea what it could be?

Oh and happy birthday to my blog mom Leslie!! Please go wish her a happy birthday! :-)

  13. Awesome interview! I have that strange pain in my achilles to...as soon as I start running, it goes away, but when I'm not running...ouch! Weird...

  14. Totally cool interview, Julianne...you are an inspiration to all your readers...

    As for your ankle pain...it sounds like it could be achilles tenditis...it is usually a pain that subsides after a few miles (once circulation gets going) but flares up when you are walking/resting. It might not be so bad...so make sure you R.I.C.E. it a bit and stretch it out adequately before you start running.

    Hope this helps. Congrats on your interview!

  26. Hi Julianne,
    I am looking to run Seattle at the end of June, then rent a car to drive to my dad's in San Ramone. Then I'll stay for the month and finish my trip with the SF marathon. Still tenative in the planning stag, but barring an injury, I am going to run the SF marathon this summer!

  31. Your interview was so fun to read! 18 months in Kazakhstan? Incredible. Also, I think you underestimate why we all love reading your blog-- I love your enthusiasm for running and (it seems) just for enjoying life. You inspire me to try to get out there and do more since I tend to be hesitant about such things-- give yourself due credit! Hope all is well with Achilles.
