Saturday...running of the ____

I admit it. I'm a wreck. My feet hurt. My knees are acting up. I am sneezing and my nose is running. I've been unable to get a massage therapist for Thursday - I guess Thurday is a pretty active day for therapists, and nobody wants to work evenings. I'm feeling at odds at work. I'm feeling anxious at home. All this will pass and life will return to "normal" on Sunday after the half marathon. I'm sure of it (read:I'm praying for it) In the meantime, you will find me behind the bullet-proof glass at work, smiling, even though I don't want to. And if you ask - the answer is, I want to go home and crawl under the covers until Friday when we all gather to prepare for our run. I just wanna run. This has become my great release.

And after my run I can soak my body and go to bed. Smiling from the inside this time.


  1. I take glucosamine and Fish oil to keep the pain away. It takes Glucosamine about 2 months before it kicks in.

    Running a half marathon is a lot of work. Just enjoy yourself and the outdoors.


  2. Can you soak in a super hot bath in the meanwhile? (Sorry for all your aches and pains). Bleh.
