Healthcare hassles

10:00 AM - 8 miles, 54:05 - Rail Trail.
Out-n-back 6 on the trail, followed by a train track add-on and another out-n-back mile on the trail. Best run in a week, which isn't saying much.

4:00 PM - 4 miles, 30:00 - Pakachoag.
Afternoon stroll past my new place, down Hampton Street and back home the short way. 6 x 20-second strides on the way in. Hip seems to have loosened up a bit.

I should be laid out horizontally in an MRI machine at the Worcester Medical Center right now but a bunch of bureaucratic bullshit on the insurance side of things has me sitting vertically in front of the computer instead, all the while hoping Dr. Davis can successfully appeal on my behalf Monday morning.

Pissed off would be a severe understatement. Fuck the healthcare system.

Quote of the Day

"I have such a passion for competing, and I hate to lose. I suppose this gets me into trouble sometimes. Mostly I think it helps. I mean, you have to push really hard in running. That's where our greatest moments come from. And the worst. They both spring from the same place."

ditto on the healthcare. being constantly injured is a bitch, but the hassle of figuring whether your insurance will cover your attempts to right yourself just makes it that much sunnier.
