I sent this email to a few of my runner friends yesterday to gauge their opinions, and I thought I’d post it here so you could all share your collective wisdom with me.
Back story: In July, I signed up to run the Shamrock half marathon with friends. At the time I thought all my foot woes would be behind me. In reality, we know that hasn’t been the case. We’re about three weeks out from the race, my foot is starting to feel better and I’m starting to get the burning desire to toe the starting line again.
And that brings us to the email:
So on a scale of one to I would be a complete and total moron, where do you think me still trying to run Shamrock falls?
I haven’t been able to run much the last month+ as you all know. But I’ve been spinning regularly 2-4 times per week and last weekend I did 2 hours of spin followed by a 4.5 mile run without any problems….so endurance-wise I’m OK.
Foot-wise…it’s doing kind of better…but still has moments of hurting like a B.
If I don’t run to race….and just you know try to finish…would it still be really stupid?
Share your insights and wisdom!
So my wonderful Internet runner friends, what say you? Would I be a stupid fool for trying to do this?
