What’s Up?

23 Oct

Well, What’s Up is that I’m posting yesterday’s Tuesday Truth because…well…I forgot to post it yesterday. On Tuesday!  I know I’ve been very lax lately about telling the Truth on Tuesday but I’m back on track – I think.


Today’s truth?

This year for the first time, I’ve backed out of two races that I was really excited about.

First was the Rock and Roll Providence Half Marathon. I had registered for this earlier in the year (when they were running one of their “register today for $5” kind of promotions) but then learned about a smaller, local half (Hogsback Half Marathon) and I registered for that one too. Then realized that they were both in the same weekend. Which, wasn’t a problem. I mean, I ran the Goofy Challenge this year so I know I could do it. But then I learned that I would have to pick up my Providence packet no later than 5 pm on the same day as Hogsback and knew that there was no way I would make it. So. Bummed to not get to run with my Team McGraw friends. But I seriously enjoyed the Hogsback so it wasn’t a complete loss!

The next was the ING Hartford Half Marathon. This one always falls during my annual Columbus Day Welcome Fall weekend/party/get-to-gether but I really wanted to do it this year so I signed up and was getting really excited about it! Unfortunately, I had pulled a glute muscle and bruised my ankle the previous weekend at Tower of Terror. And with Wine and Dine coming up I thought it was more prudent to not put the extra 13.1 miles on. It’s part of that whole being Smart and listening to your body thing that is pretty important in running. And also, frankly, really hard to do for some of us!

Needless to say, I’m a little disappointed in myself but know I’m doing the right thing – massage, rest, icing…and I’m really ready to tackle my final Magical Miles for 2013 next month!!


So there you have it. And that’s the Truth.
