My Run-Walk Around the Walls of Jerusalem
by Steve Ray on May 1, 2012
My goal is to run between 1,000 to 1,200 miles a year. As my wife and I get older we consider it our “medicine.” Today I am right on track even though I have a torn meniscus in my knee. I have an appointment on May 23 (when I return from Israel) to get orthopedic surgery to repair my knee. It will be my first surgery ever in my life.
Even though I can’t run, I can still do “brisk walking” which enables me to keep up my miles without doing further damage to my knee before surgery.
Yesterday I took a brisk walk around the Walls of Jerusalem. I took a lot of pictures and videos along the way and charted it on a map through GPS. You can see the run and enjoy it for yourself – a virtual run around the Walls of Jerusalem.

Hi Steve, I have been wondering about your knee and how much running you have been doing. The surgery will really make a difference in your activities. Hope all goes well for you and will keep you in my prayers. I had that surgery in August 2010. Also watch out for shin splints as I have had them and I don’t run.
