Soccer Injury, Slow running this week, Props to Sean's 10k

I played a 120 minute long soccer match Friday on a typical August, steamy night in Florida. I came out drained, but with a sore neck (not exactly sure how). After a day at the beach Saturday (LOADED with physical activity..soccer, running, drinking, etc), I played a full match again on Sunday. In the first half I went up to win a header and my neck got rocked back. I can barely move my upper body and am in excruciating pain. I am supposed to have a co-ed game tonight, and an indoor game Tuesday. I am not sure whether I will play in either OR run. Congratulations to Sean for another great finish in the Shelburne Falls (Mass) Bridge of Flowers 10k. Awesome work bro. You definitely inspire me.

Found your blog on mybloglog - great job running and playing soccer. I laughed at your post at feeling like the old guy out there at 30 - I know that feeling as I get passed by young runners on our trail. My husband has been living with crohn's for about 19 years - I know it is tough - hope it is going well.
