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…

First Trail Race Jitters

Have I lost my mind? I said I wasn't going to do this especially not this year. I am registered for the Double Creek Half on the 16th which is where my current focus is. I've been running some Rail Trails, but I've yet to really run a true trail.

When my friend registered,  I told her to have fun. But yesterday I found out that her brother-in-law who was supposed to run it with her wasn't able to run it now. After an all day debate with myself, I told her yes I'd do it.

As tomorrow gets closer, all I can think was WHAT WAS I THINKING? Am I insane? Did I lose all common sense within a 24 hour period? But here I am with a post race bag packed with a change of clothes etc and my race clothes all laid out for tomorrow.

I haven't been this nervous since I went into labor with my son. Let's just hope tomorrow doesn't hurt as bad as labor did!
