I’m still injured and as of today it’s been 35 days since my last run… 35 days, that’s it??? Feels like an eternity! Recovery is going very slowly and I’m looking at a few more months of no running. I’m feeling a TAD better about that, just a TAD. Given my 1-race-a-month habit, it’s been soul crushing to have to give up and/or plan to bow out of race after race after race.
So, I’m sure you can imagine how happy I was to read that the course limit for the SLO Marathon is 8 hours! Yipee! That means I don’t have to give this one up! Can’t run, can walk, can’t wait!!! While it’s strange to think that I am going to intentionally walk a half marathon, as an ambassador for the race, I am beyond elated that I am able to still participate and am really looking forward to spending the weekend in beautiful San Luis Obispo surrounded by magnificent blue skies and those gorgeous rolling hills.
