Well, I have had to drop out of pretty much every race I signed up for this year. Boo! This calf injury has been harder to recover from than I thought. I am just about to finish up my 4th week in a walking boot and I am really hoping that that will do the trick and I can get back to running (injury free).
In the mean time I have set two goals to look forward to.
- Dwight Crum Pier to Pier 2 mile swim. Yes, I have done this swim twice but I always take the easier route and wear a wetsuit. So this year I will train for the non-wetsuit swim. AHHH!!!! I am terrified to swim that long without a wetsuit and my biggest fear is getting too cold before I can finish. Well, the only way around this is practice practice practice!
- Boston Qualify! I have two races lined up. First I have the Santa Clarita Marathon in November. One of my all time favorite races because it is where I started running. But just in case in am not quite ready for a BQ effort then I have a December marathon lined up… CIM in Sacramento! I have never run this race and I am super excited for it!
