I went to see my doctor; who I have known my whole life, to talk about a surgery I need to get soon. While booking the date, the conversation went a little something like this:
Doctor: Well how about the first week of February?
Me: I can’t. I’ll be in Nicaragua that week running a Survival Run. I’m not sure how long it is, say over 80 kilometers or something like that… If I even make it to the finish, what about the next week?
Doctor: Oh, I can’t. I’ll be running an ultra in Switzerland that week. How about the week after?
Me: But Doc, I’ll be healed from the race by then and want to start training again?
Doctor: Well then try to not rip the stitches out when you train….
You gotta love a Doctor who shares your passions.
