Hard Decisions

    I am so sorry! Dang it!!!! These bodies of ours sometimes do not cooperate with our plans, do they? I know the feeling of being left behind, and I can imagine for you, a much more competitive athlete than myself, the feeling is magnified greatly!

    However, we just got back from Southern Ca. and it was gorgeous and beautiful! An oasis compared to the snowy white barrenness we’re living in now. You will love it out there and just think of the running you can do while there! Maybe even on the beach??

    Enjoy yourself. You need it. You’re right; there will be other 50’s and other years.

    Congrats on making such a smart decision!!!! It makes me so happy to hear that you are putting your body and common sense ahead of the race. I hope you and Troy have a great weekend — races come and go, but knees are pretty important. Yay! Be proud of your decision, it’s the right one!!

    I was going to support you if you decided to race but I am really relieved that you have decided to allow your body to heal. I know what a tough decision it must have been for you. Have a great weekend in Catalina and I will hopefully be in NM to cheer you on for Jemez Mtn!!

  4. Enjoy the weekend. Heal!

    But it is certainly understandable about the pain of missing a race! I wish I didn’t know it myself.

    Any theories on why the pain is there?

    You made the right choice in the long run, you will Run again real soon.
    Enjoy the high speed boat ride to the island.

    I’m so sorry your body’s not cooperating. :-( But, what a fantastic vacation to have to take! Enjoy the trip, and the r&r, and heal up! ((hugs))

    Oh Son! What a bummer! But I have to say that, once again, you amaze.

    Not only are you an inspiration when you race, but you are an inspiration when you don’t. You constantly show us how to be committed to a life of adventure and athleticism. Sometimes that means not racing today, so you can rock it tomorrow.

    I agree that it was the correct choice – I have too many stories of making the incorrect choice; many of which resulted in braces and crutches for several weeks or months. Your body is too young to use up already. Enjoy the vacation and r&r!
