Happy Last Friday of the Month! You know what that means – it’s time to link up with my best girl Marcia and cleanse your soles. Let the runfessing begin…
The biggie: I’m not running right now. At all. I’m like a miser with the few measly milligrams of iron I have left in my body – I’m not spending them on anything! Even though all I want to do in the world is go for a run. Sad face. I’m trying (with moderate success) to act like this bout of anemia is just like any other overuse injury – I wouldn’t be running with a broken leg, now would I?
Related: It’s a rough time of year to not be running! Gorgeous weather, spring races galore and of course Boston. Ugh. Peanut butter and jealous.
And yet: I am racing this weekend. Or, more accurately, I am participating in a race this weekend. ‘Cause I sure as shootin’ ain’t racing it! The Capital City Classic has been on my calendar since the beginning of the year, since it’s Leg Four of the NorCal Tour de Fit. I had originally intended to run the 10-miler, so I guess the silver lining is that I hadn’t plunked down that chunk of change yet. I’ll be walking the 5K instead.
It’s true: I’m a pill to live with right now. Life has handed me lemons and I am making sour grapes out of them. I don’t even know how that works!
Okay, that really does feel better! A little bit of runfessing/ranting/whining/venting is good for your sole and your soul. Join in the fun!
