I've talked about my injuries before. After the DisneyWorld Marathon in January, my ITB pain was so bad I basically couldn't run for almost 2 months. I had to drop from the half to the 5 Mile run at Canyonlands. I was really upset. I loved running Canyonlands last year and was looking forward to running it again.
It's strange how I thought that I was somehow only supposed to share my successes on my blog--my wonderful mile--the next PR... and that if I said I was hurt and and angry about it, that was somehow less noble.
I still don't know if I am running as well as I was last year. The bad thing is that I don't know if I'm okay with that. I guess I have to be.
