Me: I was ..uh..running at night..um..with a group of people doing a running relay.
Dr: Why were you running at night now?
Me: It was a 24 hour race. You know running..
Dr: (after looking at a previous MRI of my spine and neck) Now why is it you are still running? Do you have sciatica or back pain or both?
Me: Back pain mostly. I use A.R.T. to treat it..
Dr: What is ART?
Me: A chiropractic thing....
Dr: Well, I suppose it is keeping you healthy and all. I don't know how long you are going to be able to keep running with this spine..
Me: Well, I guess my days are numbered but I am training for an Ironman.
Dr: Shakes his head...and smiles...
Dr: (after looking at my ankle). Not a bad sprain. Posterior pain but no anterior pain. That is good..I will give you an air cast to wear..
Me: Can I run in it?
Dr. Well, until the pain is gone I wouldn't.
Me: Can I walk fast in it until then?
Dr: Sure...You should use the cast for 10 days or so..
I came home, took 600 mgs of Vitamin "I" (I know, I know..don't send me those articles please) and immediately went out and walked 5 miles...
Is this the sign of a crazy person??
