Yeah, who’s happy about that, yes, meeee!
A few hours ago, really, I thought I was done… All my NYC marathons are always a mess, always, so why not this one? First I had an ulcer that didn’t let me run for 2 months starting mid July, then as soon as I was trying to salvage my last month of “training”, I fell flat on my face in the beginning of my first long run (since my marathon last September, A YEAR AGO!), then I had this weird leg pain, so I stopped running 10 days ago then I fell again last Sunday. Anything else??
This weird groin/hip/leg pain was super strange, like uncontrollable spams, that I had for most part of the last month. And it got CRAZY last week, it hurt to walk, to turn, to be awake… so I stopped running. Had an XRAY, an MRI and the results are in! A Labral Tear. So, it’s not a fractured hip as the doctor had suggested “and if it’s a fracture, there is no way I am letting you run that marathon“! She was nicer today: get a cortisone shot and go for the gold. What? I am not that fast!!!
I am soooo relieved! Now I just have to get a shot ASAP and hope for the best: I am barely trained, haven’t even run in 2 weeks and have no clue what to expect. This will be fun. Wish me luck
Oh, and track me if you want, I am runner 724! See you out there!
