The quick fix for my shin wasn't the miracle I was hoping it would be, so there isn't much point in sharing the details. To sum it up, it was running slowly up a steep incline to force underused muscles to get stronger faster. Unfortunately, my shin hurts a little more, not less, today. For my short little "run," I wore my Hobble Creek Half race shirt. On the back it says FINISHER . My husband asked what the people who didn't finish got. I jokingly said maybe they got a DNF or DNS shirt - did not finish or did not start - and told him those are actual running terms. Then he asked if there were DNPTP shirts. It took me a few seconds, and then I laughed. DNPTP - did not poop their pants.
