I got the call yesterday afternoon. I have two stress fractures in my left foot. I will be in the boot for 4-6 weeks and have to do PT for a few weeks. I have to miss my 15k trail run and likely my June HM. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t devastated. I had such big plans for this year and now it feels like I’ve been defeated. Running makes me a better person in many ways. I’m more patient, relaxed, level headed and happy when I’ve run. I like myself more after a run as silly as that sounds. I know this is temporary, but I’m one to need extra time to adjust to any change. For me, this is a really big one. In a few days, I’m hoping to have my go get ’em pants on. I can still do upper body strength training, so there’s that. I am just most upset about missing the M2 challenge. I know in the grand scheme of things, this is minuscule. Things could be SO MUCH worse. Thanks for reading, friends.
