I was ready for the half marathon and Jnauray 3rd I ruptured my Achilles in a freak accident at dance class. So I have gone from 4 dance classes a week, Pilates, running and active life on a farm to Couch Potato with propped up leg. *sigh* I had signed up for ExE again w/ GF who is just getting started, but I will not even start weight bearing until April 7th. I would enjoy hearing from any other runners that have been through this. I found two Achilles rupture blog sites and they were so horrible I cried for hours. I want/need to hear from ACTIVE people. BTW, I am 47 years young.
