Well, it’s official. I have decided to run the Garry Bjorkulund’s Half Marathon. And as much as it pains me choose the half over the full, I know that this is the right choice. I have been going to PT at least one a week for the past 4 weeks and the pain hasn’t gotten worse, but it also hasn’t gotten significantly better. With only 8 weeks until Grandma’s marathon, I didn’t think it’d be smart to just try and brute force my way through the training cycle and further injure myself.
Despite my disappointment, I am still excited to be able to run the half distance. It starts midway through the full and continues along the full course so I’ll still be able to run along beautiful Lake Superior. Also, since I will not be attempting a PR at this race, I can just enjoy it for all it’s beauty and take lots of pictures. Hooray!
So that’s my update for today. 🙂 Happy Monday!
