What's Left

I had high hopes that I’d be well into my training for the ING Miami Marathon at this point. But I looked at my checkbook and what’s left isn’t enough for the entry fee … let alone the flight and a hotel.

After stretching, strengthening, foam rolling, icing and resting what’s left in my left knee is soreness.

Weeks into an effort to pull my athletic self together I found my fast on the back half of a 10 miler. I also found that my Achilles’ Heel is actually my left achilles tendon.

I’m not sure what’s left but I’ll try to make it right.

Today, you have 100% of your life left.

Money and knees are the two things that have kept me from many a running dream. It is frustrating, to say the least.
But Miami is a great race and it'll stick around for a long time (even if they are getting a new sponsor- just something I've heard).
So, maybe I'll see ya there in 2010!

Take care of the knee.. the race will be around, but your knee may not if you don't take care of it.

You do have 100% of your life left, make sure you use it wisely. There's no money left in the checkbook because you have a little munchkin . . .

I just booked my flight down to Tulsa for the Route 66 Marathon, but am waiting for my next paycheck to actually register! Let's just hope they don't sell out.

Also, hope your knee starts making a miraculously recovery! Mysterious knee injuries suck.
