My Running Docs

Post by kcy1998 on Sun Nov 17, 2013 8:06 pm

I want to do some bragging on my doctors. This past Saturday was the Richmond Marathon, Half and 8k. Since I was a coach for the Half Training Team I could not run the race. But I did see my cardiologist and electro physiologist. I saw my electrician was running the half. I saw the electrician at mile three. Then getting the last Kangaroo across the finish line I went out and ran with my cardiologist starting at mile 19.
The link below is of the pictures I took during the run. If you scroll to the bottom of the link the bottom three pictures of my cardiologist and electrician. The cardiologist is wearing an orange head band and sun glasses. The last two pictures are of my electrician. Both are wearing a green singlet. The participants of the Half Marathon Training Team were given a green singlet. My cardiologist trained on the Half Marathon Training Team but decided to run the full. The longest distance he ran in training was 12 miles. Then he decided to go out and run the full marathon.

Very Cool Kevin! It's nice to know that docs are as crazy as we are sometimes, running long without enough training.

I love the pics you take, everyone having a blast!

Sounds like your Cardiologist is following your example Kevin... Nice! That had to be a really special race with both your Cardio and your sparky running plus everyone on your training team.

Your race pictures are THE BEST!!! You always capture the feeling of the race course so well. I want one of those tiny cameras too.

Way cool coach!!!

I hope that your cardiologist got to experience all that someone who trains for a half and then runs a full should experience. Very Happy

Hey Kevin,
Ask your electrician if I can come down for a fourth opinion, and maybe a race My electrician is a runner too, but says he never races anymore.

Come on down. The guest room is available. The next big race is the Monument 10k. They will have 20k plus. It is in the spring. Make it really productive and get a fourth opinion also.

It is nice to see both of my docs on the course. They deserve a lot of credit for keeping me ticking and running. The electrician is more traditional when it comes to training for a race. The general contractor was just along for the ride and kept saying that he was "living in the presence".

Dave,
My bride describes me as the paparazzi. If you take enough pics the odds are good that a few of them will capture the moment. With Christmas right around the corner it is kind of late to start making up for all your naughtiness over the past year. You can start now for Christmas of 2014. Laughing

My first entry was pretty short. It has been the longest journey of my life. It has now been 8 months, 14 days since my CABG. I exercise every day. I've done 2 local 5ks (very slow) I've been looking for a heart support group, but never thought of a running heart group...Very grateful to be alive today. I'll decide whether to do the Freedom Run this week. I need encouragement. I was thinking 10k? Thanks, Judi

Hi Judi, glad you found this thread and brought it back to life.  I think you will be ok at the 10K, that's what I plan on running.  I had rotator cuff repair surgery this past January so still not quite 6 mos post op.  I would have planned for the 1/2 marathon but I'm still trying to get back in shape before I put too much pounding on my bones and joints.

I hope you decide to join us, you'll meet some great people.

You're doing pretty well for 8 months out Judi... I was just starting to feel normal again at 1 year and I was only 46 years old. It's a real tough surgery. They told me it was about like being run over by a truck and all I can say is that it must have been a very BIG truck!

I don't know which distance you should run but I can tell you that I've talked to the Race Director and he has been very helpful and is excited that our group is running the race. He said he would make sure that if anyone from HEART needed to switch to a shorter distance at the last minute he would get them in even if the distance was capped out. With that assurance I would say it's safe to be optimistic. I registered for the Half Mary even though I'm not sure my injured knee is up to it yet. I figure I'll know by October and I'll run a shorter distance if need be.

Hey Judi!!! Hope you decide to join us - I WAS going to do the half - but I've got some pretty bad Plantar Fasciitis going on right now - so I might do a 10K....or a 5K....or just hang out!!!

I remember being about 8 months out from my open heart surgery - it was a very tough road for me to get back (mentally mostly) - and at that time I was nowhere near being able to run a half - and that's not a comment about what I think your abilities are.....it just took me a very looooong time to recover. I think the first event I did was a 10K a year later - now I'm 4 years out and doing well.....except for this foot of mine.

So I hope to meet you - sounds like you're doing great!!!
