"Thanks for your thoughts. Is stretching my foot over a tennis ball a good thing to do while it is healing or should I wait until I get back to running again, whenever that is."

"I was once told by my boss to always respond with something like, "Ya know, just getting by." If you say great or fine, that means you don't have enough work to do. I thought there was a certain amount of truth to that one... "

Adam Birch replied to N Fan's discussion Decision on delaying education
"I would recommend doing this at a low cost state college or community college. I often tell people unsure about what they want for the future to hold off on college because college is an extremely expensive way to find yourself."
