I’m dropping out of the Half Marathon I was supposed to run this Sunday. I hurt my foot a few weeks ago during a 12 mile training run and ever since then it hasn’t been the same. It’s improved a lot, but I went on my first run (only 2.65 mi.) today since then and although it didn’t kill me to run on it, it was definitely sore within the first mile and is still sore now. When injured I think about if I want to run now or if I want to continue running forever.
This is the first race I’ve ever had to drop out of and I must say it’s pretty heartbreaking. I know that probably sounds dumb and dramatic, but I was REALLY looking forward to it. I guess it’s for the better to not run for more reasons than just my foot. It would’ve been a pain in the ass to get there and honestly I don’t even know how I would manage getting there without spending a ton of money, so in the long run it’s better for my health and my finances to stay home.
So, before I could even say hello to you, goodbye 13.1 Boston, maybe I will see you next year.
