You know it and I know it. It is complete torture to a runner to be taunted with running one minute at a time. One minute!!! Are you kidding me? That's a bad joke. That's like letting Jamoosh, Vanilla and my husband watch only the first three seconds of this video. It's just an unfair tease.
It continues from there. I won't really be running until the end of December. Can't start training for any races until January. My advice to you: never get a stress fracture. It sucks. It takes forever to get on your feet again. If you have to get a stress fracture, get one in your finger or your cheekbone. That way you can still run.
Don't get me wrong. I see the big picture. I know I will be back soon. Just trying to be patient.
I made my son go with me today on my walk/run. Here I am before we left. I am smiling because I am going to run. For. One. Stinking. Minute:
I just wrote another article. This one is most appropriately on the topic of common running injuries. Not that I have that on the brain or anything.
BTW, thanks for all the feedback on whether to sell my marathon bib or not. I am chickening out. It's not worth it to me to take the chance of being forever hated and black balled by the RnR people. I'll just suck it up and hope I find $110 laying on the sidewalk in San Antonio.
