I used to run. I used to run with my sister-in-law, we would run for an hour at a time and it was wonderful. That's a big accomplishment for me, running is hard. I don't care what anyone says, running is hard.
As my symptoms have gotten worse, I have been able to run less and less. I used to go to the gym about 6 days a week, now it's 3-4. I used to be able to run for an hour+, now it's 5 minutes and my head pounds and my legs ache.
I've seen a number of comments from other Chiarians on the Chiari FB page discussing running, and many have talked about running post-surgery. That is so uplifting to me, makes me so excited.
I am seriously stressed about being so inactive for so long. But the idea that it's possible I may have my pain gone or lessened, and be able to run again makes it a little easier.
