Vader Vapor.

My mom is so proud of me.  My coworkers are pretty proud of me too.  And I'm proud of myself too.

I went to the asthma doctor yesterday!  I know.  I'm awesome.

I have a confession.  I have been being a noncompliant asthmatic respiratory therapist runner.  Epic fail.

My new doctor is great.  He was recommended to my by my noncompliant asthmatic respiratory therapist coworker. 

I told him I'm a runner (and I felt kinda awesome referring to myself that way, and guilty because I haven't run in a while), and that I felt my asthma was holding me back.  We came up with a very aggressive game plan to manage my asthma and allergies and he hooked me up with a terrific "sack o nerd".  I've got inhalers, nasal sprays, and eye drops to nip this thing in the bud. 

More good news, my ankles are getting better.  They start to hurt about halfway through my night at work, so I'm still kind of nervous about running on them. 

I know Dr. Oz and Google are not the best primary care physicians, but orthogate is a great website that explains a little about the peroneal tendon and problems that occur. 

I really want to start running this week.  I've been doing strength training since I haven't been running, but like I told Dr. Wheeze, "I'm a runner."

Congrats to all the awesome runners at the Boston Marathon yesterday!!  You guys rock, hard.
