DNS! Did not start! OK, to be fair, I knew I wasn't participating in the race because of my back, but, now that the day has come and gone, I feel so bummed.
The Jamestown Bridge 10k was the only race I was registered for ahead of time and I was really looking forward to it. I have been told it was a fun race and a beautiful view and you get jelly beans at the end. Fun!
I wanted to do this race for the above reasons, but also because my parents are in town and they would of been able to see me cross the finish line. DH and the kids would all have been there too and I think it would of been a great way to start the day.
Honestly, I was fine until I picked up my number on Thursday. I would of been 124. I liked that number. When I picked it up and got my shirt, my mood changed. I wanted to run and I was mad that I couldn't. Believe me when I tell you, I thought about it, but I knew I would make my family mad. I only have three more weeks before I see the doc and I know she will give me the ok to run. I would of been more angry if I ran today and hurt myself, or couldn't finish because I haven't been training.
PT is going great! I continue to have more good days then bad and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I am looking at different training plans for the Nike Women's Half Marathon in October. I will let you know what I come up with but I would love to know which plans you have followed.
Tuesday, I will be meeting other Rhode Islanders who will also be doing the NWM and I will officially be signing up. I am really excited about this as it will be a fabulous weekend for am amazing cause. If anyone reading would like to be part of our team, message me and I will give you the details.
Did you run the Jamestown Bridge race? How did it go? Have you ever run the NWM? I would love to hear details, the good and the bad. How did you train for the hills?
Ok, well thanks for reading and listening to me vent. I know there will be other races and I am just grateful that I will be able to run again.
Run strong, think big!
