It has been a long road to get back to this point – 16 months since my first marathon, which did not go as planned. 16 months of tearful marathon deferments, lots of physical therapy, and a slow step by step injury recovery plan.
I dreamed of marathon #2 being my chance to comebetter and show myself what I am made of and along the way the journey has been full of fabulous ups (Hello Mizuno Sponsorship!) and crushing downs (What did I do to karma to get this sick 2 days before the race?).
However, now is the time. I will not be stopped. People asked, “Will you still race if you’re sick?”
I respond, “Try to stop me.”
So, I am off to The Country Music Marathon in Nashville. I will spend all day tomorrow driving and then trying to get to bed super early so I can rest before the marathon as I am quite the nasty sick thing right now.
Which means the next time I post I will have finished my marathon!
Prayers that these antibiotics kick in fast and I start to feel better! Marathon time!
