Houston...we have a problem

Houston...we have a problem

Yeah, I know.  Major cliche there but it really does justice.  The Houston half is January 14th.  It is now December 12th.  I have not run since December 2nd due to the pain in my you-know-what leg.  At this point, using my engineering background, there is a 0% chance of sub 1:40.  50/50 chance I'll be running the darn race - at all.  It's time to be realistic and it just may not be in the cards.  I'll know more soon when my dad comes up this weekend [he's a podiatrist] but as the days pass, the less positive I feel about it.  It stinks but the larger picture must be kept in mind for 2007: sub 3:40.   Worst case scenario? I have a 4 day break from NYC and lose my race entry fee.

On that note, I signed up for the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in Washington, DC on April 1st.  I missed it last year due to being involved in the year of the wedding. 

Congrats to all that raced in the 10K this past weekend.  I had a great time cheering, even if it was a bit bittersweet knowing I couldn't be out there.

That's all for now - things are pretty "bleh" overall with life in general right now.  Work is pretty busy and running me a bit ragged.  However, I did have an awesome Monday night as I met a friend to skate in Bryant Park followed by checking out the store holiday windows. 

Not exactly an uplifting entry but that's life.

  • More *hugs* here. I've had pain in my left foot for a while now, so I know how frustrating it can be. I'm also hating work right now so I feel you on that, too.

    I was very amused to see the CB10miler on April Fool's Day!
