Well, I've dealt with 4 weeks of torture so far thanks to a torn tendon in my right foot. I've been focusing on fundraising for my races in February to keep myself motivated. If you're a regular you know that I designed the shirt in this photo and was selling them to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. 
Well, let me tell you, the universe totally understands me. I have been having a very hard time emotionally dealing with this injury. The shirt came the morning after my hardest day so far. I love it. 
First of all the size small fits me! A year ago I would have ordered the large so that's awesome! 

Also, as soon as I put it on I realized that while I might not be training physically this situation is training me to keep it together and to keep going when the going gets tough. It has also shown me just how important running is to me and how much I have invested emotionally in this journey. 

This is me at the bottom of the first flight of stairs. I live in a third floor walk up... 

Have you had to deal with an injury in the middle of your training? How did you handle the frustration and disappointment?

  1. I have been dealing with an injury too that has put me out for the last month aside from a few runs here and there that were quite painful. I am hoping that I can actually make it through my half on Sunday! I have stayed motivated though by reading other race experiences and just support from fellow runners. Love the shirt design- hope you feel better soon!
