New Goals

Well my hip feels better when I only run every other day and about 4 miles is the limit. It is not pain free, mind you, but at least I can keep running.

BUT I am so sad since I think training to run the Philadelphia Marathon is probably out of the question. I have 11 weeks to train and haven't done a long run in two weeks and definitely can not do one this weekend. I suppose if I keep nursing my hip, I could continue training and see how far I get in the training. I am definitely going to go and run the half for sure. I really really really want to do whole marathon though. Time will tell.

I have had HORRIBLE allergies this fall season. Holy macarel. I think I have finally have a plan to combat the allergies though. I have some natural medicine called Aller Leaf that is effective and Nettles tea along with cleaning my sinuses with a rhino horn (yuck, but it works). I have suffered ever since school started and my naturopath tells me that many teachers are coming complaining. What the heck is in those schools? Dusty books? Moldy basements?

Well, 11 weeks might be pushing it a bit, and I think there will be more marathons in the future :-) Good decision!!

Glad to see you back in the technological world. Be careful with that hip. Running in short incremements is definitely better than not running at all.

How is Philly looking? How are you feeling? I'm running # 10 in Harrisburg, PA on 11/9. Will there be any chocolate at the finish?

A few hundred sick and dirty people in a closed space, thats what's in the school. lol

Take care of your hip. There will always be other run, you only get one body..
