Before I Go...

There's a good chance I won't have time to post tomorrow. I'm going to try to get on here and at least post a quick one about what the doctor says and where I'm leaning on if I'm running or walking and which race...

In the meantime, keep tossing up prayers and sending good vibes my way that we'll find out there's nothing serious going on with my hip. Honestly? I'm secretly hoping that it's nothing major and for a quick fix that will allow me to run the full I trained for... I could care less about a PR now. I'd just like to run with minimal pain for the full 26.2 and cross that line. And then take the rest of the month off from running.

One good thing about all this is that if by some chance I can run the full, at least I spent the whole week thinking I couldn't and avoided all the usual race week anxiety and restlessness. I've been disappointed and frustrated instead, but that's not nearly as exhausting, ha. We'll see what happens. Come back later to find out.

I also wanted to give a shout out to Aron. She's running her second marathon on Sunday in California (where the weather should be warmer than what I'll have in Memphis on Saturday). She's been rocking out in her training, so I know she'll do great. I'll be cheering her on in spirit that morning, and I can't wait to hear how it goes.

Good luck to anyone else who may be running or racing this weekend.
