On hold

I haven’t posted an update on my running so I thought that it was about time that I did. Unfortunately, the running is still on hold. I REALLY wish that I had a different update to report – but I don’t. As my leg takes longer and longer to heal, I must admit that I dinged it pretty good. In all fairness, I didn’t think that it was that bad when I was running on it – but I guess it was. I'm still biking away with the goal of a 30 mile and a 12 mile ride this week.

So, against my wishes, I’m not running on it until there is no pain at all. Unfortunately, I think that this means that I probably won’t put any real weight on it until Thanksgiving or so. So, I probably won’t be “running” the 5K/10K that I wanted to but I may walk it with my wife. My goal of a 20min 5K and a 45min 10K will have to wait.

However, I anticipate that I will eventually get back on the wagon. So, I have started to look for some spring races. I am almost certainly doing the Fargo, ND marathon on May 9th but would also like to find out in the April timeframe. Does anyone have any suggestions??

There are a couple late April (25) - one in Nashville (Country Music marathon and 1/2), one in Minot, ND (Trestle Valley Marathon).
