So- I guess I should update this blog since it's been awhile. A lot has happened since my last post. Perhaps a lot will happen before my next post.
For fun and old times sake-Random News!
I have a femoral neck stress fracture and will not be running for a LONG time. I can't quite describe how frustrating this has been for me. Besides the fact that I love running in general, it is also a MAJOR stress reliever for me and an outlet that I've relied on to get through the busyness of my life. Obviously I am not the only person in the world with an injury....Also-anyone with any advice on recovery-I'll take it!!!
Not only am I not running, I am not biking, swimming, or walking. I am hobbling on crutches for 6-8 more weeks and then will gradually progress to walking, light biking, swimming and potentially running slowly later in the fall.
In happier news, my husband just began his marathon training plan for the Twin Cities Marathon in October. This will be his first marathon and he needs a 3:15 to qualify for Boston. I am so excited to at least be able to follow his training and be his "water girl" His first instinct was to drop the marathon as he felt it would be tough for me to watch him train. Ridiculous! Conversely, I would go crazy if he wasn't training!!
My little Reese still enjoys putting on her shoes and will run another 5K on July 3rd. She has PR'ed in all 5 of her 5K's and going for another in number 6. I'm so proud of her.
I spectated my first half marathon on Father's Day. I got to watch my Dad, my husband Joe and my sister all run great races at the Manitoba half marathon. Hard not to run but fun to cheer!!!
My kids are back in hockey full force! I do love watching them as busy as it is!
So-there you have it-a little random news to explain my absence from blogging about running when I can't run! I do however still enjoy reading about running!! Hopefully this blog will return to one about marathon training in the near future if all goes well!!
