What happens when you set a goal to run a 5k on a specific date and everything is going well and you're feeling great? Something comes up to take you off off track and you don't make your goal...and it sucks.
Technically, I did meet my goal of running a 5k before I turned 30 when I ran the Beaverdash in September. But, I had always considered that a practice run and the 5k on Oct 19th was supposed to be my real run. Well, I somehow managed to severely jack up my hip and was unable to run for a few weeks. I just got the okay from my doctor to try running again and I intend to give it a go tomorrow. I'm going to start on the treadmill though to minimize the impact so I don't break myself immediately.
Just thought I'd throw out an update since I know a lot of people were wondering how I did in my goal race. The answer is, I did a great job cheering on my friends from the Injured Reserve bench that my friend Amy I created near the finish line. :)
