Quick Update

Thanks so much for all your comments on my race recap yesterday. I guess I am spoiled by NYRR having clocks at each mile. I do have to mention one thing I didn’t yesterday – the awesome volunteers. They were seriously fantastic. They were up and on the course when it was still dark out and as the rain fell – handing us water, steering us in the right direction, cheering us on. They were really fantastic and I appreciate every one of them.

In other news – my Sports Doc called yesterday with the results of my MRI. It’s a good thing I went in straight away because I have yet another stress fracture in my left femur. This one is in a different place than the one earlier in the year, and truthfully, it hurts more than that one did. It even hurts when I sneeze! Hopefully it won’t take too long to heal, the fact that it was diagnosed so soon after it happened and I started using my crutches (thankfully I didn’t let Woody get rid of them!) when we got home Sunday night, have to be in my favor. While I hate crutches, this does mean I have a good excuse to sleep in! Next appointment is in two weeks.

I think it’ll be a while before I train for, and run, another half marathon.

Thanks for all your support and good wishes!

To end this post with something happy, here’s a beautiful picture from Saturday….

I'm so sorry Lisa! I wish you a speedy recovery! I think you can count getting around on crutches as a workout - that's tough! :)
