Wanted to run this morning. Plan was 7 miles. Woke up and my foot was still fairly sore. Sore enough that I was still limping on it. Not as much as yesterday, but enough. I was tempted to try it out, but decided against it. I'm rarely able to resist the temptation to go run. But I just don't want to risk doing something stupid, 2 days after signing up for the Columbus half-marathon. Yesterday, I started feeling more comfortable on it later in the day, so I'm hoping to get a run in of some kind later tonight, even if it's just 2-3 miles. But it won't be until late tonight. We're headed to the casino today!

My dad is once again playing "banker" b/c he wants to go to the casino. But with my sister in town, he needs/wants other people to be there too. My sister, Monica, has cerebral palsy and so it helps to have other people along. Plus she's dying to see Susan. So my dad has "invited" us along, with one condition. He insists on spotting each of us $400, and we can keep any profit. If we lose, it's on him. Hard to say no, right?


  1. Darn injuries! I get a little spooked anytime I feel a twinge here and there!
    After months on the side lines I'm pretty paranoid. Good for you for taking it easy.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I read your marathon story. OH! What a heart breaker. Way to stay in the game though.

  2. And a stupid injury at that! Thankfully, I was able to run this morning (3 miles). Will be running again tonight.

    And great blog! I'm officially a follower. I'm in the process of hunting for interesting running blogs to follow. I love reading about others' experiences.
