Results are in…

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.
