In the early hours of December 24, 2017 Maggie and Mike Blankman, Caleb Blankman, and dog, Koda, woke up to their worst nightmare. Their house was on fire and they were all able to safely escape unharmed with nothing but the clothing on their backs. They lost their home and everything in it that they have worked their whole lives for.

There is also an online silent auction: https://www.facebook.com/blankmanfirereleif/

Confessions of a Lazy Person : Just Shy Of One Year Later

When I broke my leg a year ago (minus one day) the surgeon informed that it will take 6-12 months to get back to where I was before I broke my leg. I thought he was crazy! A year? I’ve since heard a few stories of healing taking multiple years and I’m starting to think getting back to where I was before I broke my leg is going to be an impossibility. Do we ever go back to where we were before a break?

The good news is, I’m running again! I tried running on the treadmill a couple months ago and it resulted in some pretty uncomfortable limping and pain. If I’m not paying attention I can still limp but I ran for 10 minutes staying strong without a limp yesterday so I think I’m getting back on track. The other thing I noticed is when I run my ankle hurts a lot, and I’m thinking this might be a good thing. It’s pushing my ankle beyond what is comfortable, more than the other exercises I do. I’m also wondering if trail running would be better – the uneven ground would make my ankle work harder than a treadmill. I think it needs a little jostling around.

Some things to think about and experiment with. I honestly thought I’d be back to normal within 3 months of breaking my leg and ankle. This has been an eye opener.
