You’re Right Even When You’re Wrong When I was in my early 30s, a podiatrist told me that if I kept running, I wouldn’t be walking by the time I was 40. I was stunned and understandably really upset. I had some decisions to make. After considering his advice, my first decision was to get a second opinion – this time making sure to go to a doctor who dealt with athletes and sports injuries. He had much better news for me and set me on the road to recovery. I’ve since run thousands of more miles and hundreds of more races, including multiple half-marathons and marathons. However, if I had chosen to BELIEVE the first doctor, I would never have run another race or done another training run . . .
