Here’s the conversation between me and the injury clinic chief.
Me: Will I be ok to run the Kaiser 5k on Sunday?
Dr: (grunts humorously)
Me: But I ran the marathon last year.
Dr: You won’t be doing that. I can tell you that.
Dr: You sound like the 84-year-old man I had today. “But Doc, I have to go back to the mountains. I put in 40 days of skiing last year and I gotta do the same this year.” 84-years-old! Doesn’t know when to stop. Stop already! You too!
