Change of Plans: Marathon

This morning I did something that I haven’t done in awhile. I went for a run. And you might say, Well Kristen, aren’t you suppose to be running a marathon this weekend?

Well. no.

I decided about two months ago, I just couldn’t make it. With every excuse in the book… just didn’t play out

-it was 110 degrees this summer in St louis

-I couldn’t run when Andrew was out of school

– I got sick, etcart

Then I realized, it just wasn’t in my heart.

BUT I am SOOOOO excited that Tiffany, Angela, and Rob will be here on Friday!!!! They are all running the MARATHON!!!!!!!!

So I am just going to stick with the half, the only problem is, my knee is truly giving me problems. It hurts to even walk down the stairs. I am going to ice it, and if I have to walk the half, then Ill walk.

Any reasons why my knee would hurt just after 3 miles??? Maybe the extra 30lbs is finally putting too much pressure on my body 😦

Question for you:

Have you been running lately?

What is your next race?

What is your favorite running quote that is your moto, or makes you laugh?

  1. Good luck at the half at least. Never do anything your heart is not into. I hope you are able to lose the 30 pounds but stretching really does a number and helps too! Thinking of you! Can you believe we have nearly known each other for 3 years?

  2. You do what you have to! I was supposed to run the full back in March in DC but I dropped to the half last minute.

    And I have no idea why I run, I don’t actually like it that much. I think its more of a mental challenge for me. I do it because I find it hard. Maybe one day I’ll be speedy like Tiffany!

  3. That picture of what you feel like running vs. what you actually look like running is hilarious! I know I look crazy when I run.
    Thanks for the laugh.
