Seven Bridges Marathon Failure
Today I should be on my way to here
to run the Seven Bridges marathon in Chattanooga Tennessee tomorrow. Instead I can not be more than a foot away from
as I have a super awesome cold. Luckily Yo Momma (you are the best!) was able to find someone to use the entry I won so I don't feel like a total loser for taking someone's place at the race. Now I can sit around watching old seasons of Mobwives, doing shots of EmergenC without feeling like a total tool.
I am bummed I got sick and won't get to do this race but there are worse things in life I guess. The real bummer is that I swam and did yoga all week in an attempt to recover from Chicago quickly and I think it worked. My legs feel great. Oh well. Once I kick this cold I am going to expand my workout horizons by swimming more, doing a body pump (weight lifting) class, yoga and Pilates along with running. My next race goal is the Winter Series which includes 3 5ks and 1 10k over the next four months with the Columbus RoadRunners. I am excited to run races that take less than four hours. Maybe even get a little speedier.
Yay for winter racing!
