What Being Injured Is Giving Me

I have to say that one thing being injured can give you is a lot of time to think. Sometimes this is a good thing - sometimes not so much. This year has been a tough one for me when it comes to injuries. The 5 month and counting hip injury really put a damper on my fitness goals this year. Then I got staph as soon as I was cleared to run. That set me back. Then the hip got super angry again, and now this (When Life Throws You A Curveball)

It's July ya'll, and I have only had a few weeks here and there this year of running consistently. It's been my worst year to date to deal with such issues. And mentally I was finally ready to run races. I had registered for both the Harrisburg and Hershey half this year. Well, we all know that's not going to happen. I'm still hobbling around in a boot. Thankfully, I was able to transfer those bibs through the registration system.

But, lately I couldn't help but wonder where does this leav…

I ran my first 10K today. I was more than nervous. In fact, I was so nervous that I almost backed out. But, I knew I could do it. I was just afraid that I would be disappointed in myself. But in the end, I’m proud of myself.

The weather was nice - not too hot or humid and not too cold. I couldn’t complain. The route was flat, which was helpful. The route along the river, as usual, was beautiful.

Pacing is difficult for me. Not knowing how far I had gone or how much farther I had to go was difficult and distracting. We had water stops, but we didn’t have any one calling out times or mileage. But overall, I did ok.

I wanted to finish in an hour. I didn’t reach that goal, but I came close. I came in at 1:02:28. A 10:04 pace. I’m pleased with myself. It was tough, but I did my best. And for that, I am proud of myself.
