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…

If It Doesn't Challenge You Virtual 10K

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

If you haven't tried a virtual race, I really encourage you to check it out.  (You can read more about virtual racing here)

This is my 2nd Virtual race with Running On The Wall  and I did the If It Doesn't Challenge You, It Doesn't Change You 10K 

Once again, the race packet was awesome - and I mean awesome!!
Not only did I get a great tank, but I got an inspirational magnet that I see every day on my frig, and arm sleeves. This time of the year, arm sleeves are a great! And I love that it says Go the Extra Mile. (FYI, if arm sleeves aren't your thing, there was also an option for a running hat). I also received a bib and a finisher's medal.


I'm one of those that won't wear the shirt or hang up my medal until I have completed the race. And this past week, I completed my 2nd Virtual 10K. This one was faster than the first, but by no means a PR for me for a 10K. My legs were super tired, and I had to stop and stretch a few times. 


But, I keep reminding myself that running for me right now isn't about numbers. It's about running for the joy of running - and that's one reason I am really loving the virtual races. 

With a virtual race, I feel like I have the liberty to race on my own terms.

Until next time....
