I haven’t run in almost two weeks. Two days after the half marathon I set out for a short run and was met with pain in the left shin again. I decided to rest it indefinitely until it feels healed and I can run with no pain or discomfort. I have been doing a lot of strength training and elliptical for cardio, but truth be told I’m miserable. As the weather improves around here I just want to run. I feel so much more productive when I’m running. My mind is clearer and my mood is calmer. I’m trying to make the best of it though.
What do I do when I can’t run? I think about running and I sign up for races. The race I signed up for today is going to be one of the most fun and most special races I’ve ever done. Carlos and I will be running our first 5K together in Boston on July 26th. We are the running duo of team Four Feet Fast (Carlos made it up!) in the Boston Color Me Rad 5K!!
If you haven’t heard about the Color Me Rad races check out the link and watch one of the videos on the site. It is guaranteed to be a blast…of color. We will be donning our whitest t-shirts at the start and by the end we will be more tie dyed than a Grateful Dead concert.
We actually have an action packed weekend that weekend of the race. The day before we are going to see the live show How to Train Your Dragon based on the movie. It sounds wild with 23 flying, fire-shooting, smoke-breathing dragons. I get to experience some very cool things alongside Carlos. Things I never realized I would enjoy until he came into my life.
With that said I’ve got some jumping to do! Orlando finally got Carlos’ birthday present from December assembled in the yard.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
