Running was definitely out of the question! The blessing in all of this? My good friend and walking partner helped me see that I was able to complete many races all Summer long with no sickness and finally now when the race calendar is winding down for the year I had time to get sick. I guess if it had to happen this was the perfect time. I'm just hoping I'm done for the year. I still have a few races left to run in 2012 and I'm not going down without a fight!
It's been a little over 2 weeks since I ran the Moab Trail Marathon on November 3rd and I have done zero running since then until today, which I only happened to slowly exert out 1/2 a mile after I walked 4 miles with my buddy. I'm chomping at the bit to be able to get back at this full swing. Thanksgiving morning will be my opportunity as I will be running with a bunch of friends from Runner's Anonymous. A lot of us will be attempting a half marathon which usually seems very doable. I'm not so sure what I will be able to accomplish. Thankfully we will be doing an out and back run and so I can always turn around if I'm feeling weak. I'm sure I will be doing a run/walk combination or just running super slow, but I'm ready to do this thing again.
And I am definitely grateful for good health. It's so easy to take it for granted. The song "Big Yellow Taxi" ran through my head multiple times as I was trying to get better, especially the line that sings:
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone?
Yes sireee, super glad for good health!!
