Yes, I know it has been a while ok a month or two since my last entry but I have been sick and injured. Yes, injured.
After almost three weeks of illness I was finally getting back into the swing of things then.... I got into a car accident and fractured my toe.
With a little over a month until the Nike Women's Half I fractured my damn toe. Can I just admit that I broke down in tears when the ER doctor said I will be healed but I won't be conditioned enough to run the half?
My poor dad was there trying to make it better by offering to give me back my registration fee. There was so much going on with my daughter being checked as well that I really couldn't break it down to him.
It's like this...you are doing something you love and benefit greatly from in many ways. It is the one thing that brings a balance to your mood and in some ways your life. Lets add the consistent challenge it presents to you to push yourself to limits on you never thought you could reach or surpass. Now for the icing, you decided to set out to accomplish your greatest challenge and conquer the fear of completing 13.1 miles; only to be told you won't or can't. *smashed my cake*
BUT! Lets no go selling my bib just yet. I found away to train while healing without further injuring myself and I will share that with you all once I get fully engaged in it and actually can say I know what I'm doing.
None the less the show will still go on. I have bought some goodies that I will share with you all over the next few days.
Until then be cool, be blessed, be easy and keep moving!
