    Run,Run,Run,

    I started back today trying to run at "full speed". Well its like a run only slower. Lot of discomfort and stiffness. It's amazing how much stamina you lose in 41/2 months. I'll keep at it because cops don't have the luxury of quitting ever.

    Go for it! If you need motivation, just pretend that aliens are chasing you--that works for me!

    Not unless you want to be a former cop, which I don't think is in your vocabulary, at least until after retirement.

    Keep at it, We're all pulling for you. You can do it.

    I know of a California HP officer that had a serious accident out in the field crushing both his legs. He now wears prosthetics and has his job back with the CHP. Though he might not be out on the road, he at least still has a job.

    There was also an officer on "Cops" with a prosthetic leg who went on a foot chase and managed to catch an athletic young guy who ran from him.

    That's the inspiration I need. Everytime I think I've got it bad I think of the service members who have come back with legs and feet blown off from IEDs that have been fitted with prosthetics who are running in marathons or returning to duty.

    I remember watching that episode.

    Why you breathing so hard?

    Cause I'm out of shape, but I still caught you, though.

    [QUOTE=Darin;372478]What happened to you? Good luck with the running.....I hate running....[/QUOTE To make a long story short a little bit of bad luck and a department issued defective Smith & Wesson model 4006 .40 caliber sidearm resulted in my suffering a gunshot to middle of my left foot. I was working a security detail in uniform at a local business and one of the female employees went outside to get something out of her car. I went outside with her and as we were walking back into the office I held the door open for her. After she went in I went to walk in behind her. Evidently my holstered weapon caught the inside push bar on the door. This resulted in the hammer on the Smith being pushed back. When the hammer released from the door and slammed back into position the weapon discharged in the holster which resulted in one perfectly good shoe being ruined. The weapon should not have gone off. Subsequent examination of the weapon has found that the internal firing pin safety block is defective( I could have told them that).
