I can’t believe it has been over four months without posting an update!

MissyFoy -

Monday, October 3, 2016 Of course, I feel so slack for not posting any kind of update.  I have been so slow answering emails, too.  Part of it is the difficulty I have been dealing with about my health problems and my increasing loss of functional status.  Oh, yeah, the pain hasn’t helped either.  In […]

When you have to figure it out on your own

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, May 24, 2016 All of us have to figure it out on our own sometimes.  And, sometimes we have to make tough decisions and we feel like we just aren’t sure if we know what we’re doing.  But, we march on anyway.  This is true for all of us, in every part of our […]

Well, almost two months later …

MissyFoy -

Thursday, April 28, 2016 Okay, okay, okay … yeah, it has been almost two months since I last wrote a blog post.  I will not bother to explain why; there are a lot of reasons. I wanted the next post to be a follow-up to the beginning years of my running by pulling out examples […]

My road running transition, 1992 to 1999, the beginning years

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, March 1, 2016 I started running in 1992.  I was 28 years old.  My husband had gotten back from the Middle East where his Army Reserve unit served six months of active duty.  I started working in medical research.  I started running after having an emergency appendectomy that turned out to be gastroenteritis and, little […]

Watching Olympic Marathon Trials

MissyFoy -

Monday, February 15, 2016 I actually watched the end of the men’s and women’s marathon trials races on TV Saturday.  I wasn’t sure if I could handle watching.  Ever since this neurological disease has knocked me down, it’s very hard to watch people run.  For a while, I couldn’t even stand to see someone running […]

How do you get to Olympic Marathon Trials?

MissyFoy -

Sunday, January 17, 2016 There is no simple answer to this question.  In part, that is because runners have different strengths and weaknesses.  Even so, I do believe that there are some basic answers to this question that apply to any runner trying to qualify for trials … or for Boston or to run a […]

Improvement … said cautiously.

MissyFoy -

Saturday, January 9, 2016 I am a couple days out from my second pelvic injection of Kenalog, my left sacro-iliac joint this time.  I thought that after surviving the pubic symphysis, this one would be a piece of cake.  It was not.  In fact, it was worse.  I don’t know why.  I am not even […]

When it feels like I’m drowning in bad news ….

MissyFoy -

Tuesday, December 15, 2015 Well, it was exactly one year ago yesterday that my first sacral fracture happened.  The bone marrow edema had already begun, but I was not aware of it and neither was my doctor … because even though I said I thought I had a sacral stress fracture from the CellCept (the only […]

Sometimes, you just have to cut the negativity out like it’s a cancer!

MissyFoy -

Friday, November 20, 2015 Well, yup, that’s my lesson for today.  It applies to life, of course, but it applies to running and all other things as well.  I am not very good at excising the bad … no, I like to mull around in the muck, feel bad for myself, second guess things, beat […]

Ups and Downs … sometimes in a week, sometimes in a single day.

MissyFoy -

Friday, November 13, 2015 We all have our ups and downs … it’s kind of what makes life go round, right?  In the past few weeks, I’ve gone from suffering from aseptic meningitis from the IVIg treatments and ending up going to the hospital, having my blood sugar drop to 30 (yes, that’s right 30) […]
