I'm so excited! I just found out I am the winner of the $100 Running Shoes from Online Shoes from the Reese's Run virtual race!! Thanks, Christy from Run Like a Girl.
Also, thanks to everyone for the advice regarding my last blog post. I so appreciate all the encouragement and suggestions. Everyone made terrific points.
- Mark Berry from Half-Marathon Mania reminded me that I have 30 days until the marathon and don't need to decide now. Great point!
- Lots of you reminded me that a lot can happen to a body in 30 days. And to keep trying. More good points!
- Glenn Jones (aka The Running Fat Guy) and Rick from Marathonman Runs Again! reinforced my concerns that attempting a marathon could cause my injury to worsen.
- I think Melanie from Mel Tries to Run imagines that I'm going to dance and rock out along the course. What Mel doesn't know is that I'm a horrible dancer (picture Elaine in Seinfeld... ya, I'm almost that bad). I do like how Mel thinks, though. In my dreams, I am a Kenyan Shakira.
So, again... thanks for all the support and advice! I guess the best course of action will be to take it day by day. Who knows... I may not know what to do for sure until the day before the marathon.
And you know I'm going to keep you posted...
