Around Christmas I bought a 5-class pack to Epic Hybrid Training on Amazon Local. My ankle was still pretty bad, but at $10 a class with six months to use it, it seemed worth it. Matt bought one too. It sounded like a nice thing to do together. (Spoiler alert: we’ve only gone together once.)

So what is Epic Hybrid Training? It’s a studio with two NY locations that’s set up to prepare students to kick ass at Spartan Races. (You know those races where warrior-like humans crawl under barbed wire and through mud?)

Not this kind of Spartan:

My best bud Natalie lives in San Francisco. This is very inconvenient for hanging out. But when she does grace the East Coast (or when I visit her out West) we easily fall back into old routines.

It’s been nearly two months since my last post.

Cycling 22 miles to Coney Island was pretty much a mic drop as far as this blog and my fitness life are concerned so I’m okay with the dramatic hiatus.

I am certain that questions of my whereabouts crowded web forums in similar style to chatter about Tupac’s disappearance. That is unless you follow me on Instagram. From my millennial-esque oversharing, you know exactly where I was. (#ButWhereisTupacREALLY?)

I received a cortisone shot. After 5 months with no change to my ankle, my doctor (the second one) suggested a cortisone shot.

This wasn’t a surprise, he mentioned it as an option a few months ago should the pain persist, which it did. Currently, I’m of the belief that any action is better than the months of inaction, so nervously I agreed. I can be a little finicky at the doctor’s office. I never refuse treatment or cry or make a scene. But I’ll make about 20 nervous jokes in the span of 4 minutes all of which are directly related to my fear.
