I have finally accepted the fact that I am indeed not doing the marathon this year. Those that know me well are probably not shocked to hear this, but I am actually shocked. It wasn't until yesterday when Annie told me that she sold my bib (I had told her to) that I realized that I am for sure out of the race this year.
I'm torn how I feel about this. I still get to go to Texas and Memphis to watch the race. I have done other marathons, but this was to be my first out of state marathon. And I was really looking forward to running again with Annie. That was really amazing last year to get that opportunity, but I guess that doesn't mean that it's the last time I can do it right?
Sorry Annie, that I can't run with you... but I am very excited to be there for you to watch!
More important I need to be better for Ironman in June. I've done absolutely no exercise (unless you count walking my ass off in Vegas) for about 4 weeks now. It's time to get back to it. I cannnot run or swim for sure as I have two partially torn ligaments that hurt like a MF'er most of the time. But I need to get back to doing core and arm stuff. As I was told "youre abs aren't broken, do some situps." As soon as I get back I am going to start working with my coach to get back into the groove. I can't wait to get back to working out!!!
