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…

Hershey 10K

After a week long cold, I still had congestion on race day. Thankfully it didn't really bother me too much.

Also there was a wreck on the major highway that we needed to take to get to Hershey. I was beginning to panic that we weren't going to make it. Thankfully Hubby made an illegal turn, went down an exit ramp the wrong way and got me to the race on time.

I got there just in time to use the restroom with about 10 minutes to spare to get to the start line.

I started off at a steady pace. I tried to keep it around 10:00 as not to go out too fast. I kept running into problems of getting hemmed in behind people. So I had to sprint ahead to find an opening to then find my pace again.

I didn't reach my goal, but I am still overall pleased with the run. I didn't allow myself to wimp out. I ran it in 1:01:00.
