Yeah yeah, I’m being melodramatic-just allow me this one day, and I’ll slightly amend that to “registering early”.
I haven’t talked about it on here because frankly-I was super bummed. In December I DNS’d Shiner Half and New Years Double (double halfs) due to a medical issue. It sucked.
It took almost a month and 8 pills a day to get my gut straightened out. Feeling better, I registered myself and Charles for Austin half marathon. The week before the race Dash came down with a stomach bug from hell, culminating in a trip to the ER for IV fluids.
It looked like he may be sick through race weekend (meaning I wouldn’t be able to leave a sick kiddo with my family), but things cleared up and by Saturday he was good to go. I worked the Austin Expo and got caught up in pre-race day excitement.
Only to start feeling pukey towards the end of the expo:
I caught Dash’s tummy bug and missed Austin Half marathon. Gotta say, I was pretty bummed, I LOVE that race but it was made slightly better by the fact I had another half marathon on the schedule just a week later-Disney Princess Half Marathon. I’m not a princess gal, and I’ve never done a Disney race but I was excited to get the full experience and FINALLY get to run a race.
And then Tuesday this happened:
*Someone* was ummm…texting and walking and uhhh…walked in to a door. I broke the bone where my toe meets my foot. The bone broke all the way through, it’s a pretty impressive texting injury. Unfortunately my doc tells me it will be 4-6 weeks until I’m allowed to try to run on it again.
Of course I’m dumb and asked what would happen if I tried to run on it on Sunday for the half and he let me know that a pin in the bone would be in my future if I pushed it so….I’ll be spectating Disney Princess (and attending this super fun champagne filled event).
I had a post planned where I wanted to tell you all about how I’m FINALLY training ( like for real, not just running but TRAINING) for Nike Women’s DC in April. Instead, I’m writing a post talking about how uhhh…I can’t train. No clue if I’ll get to run Nike Women’s DC, time will tell.
New Years Double Eve-DNS
New Years Double Day-DNS
Nike Women’s DC- *fingers crossed*
For now, I’m swearing off registering for races until I can improve my running karma. Do you have any I can borrow?
