This is my "office" (cube) wall covered with almost all of my marathon bibs. It's a way I like to stay motivated. I remind myself that I want to fill the wall up. I also have colleagues that will come over and say "hey... I don't see any new ones!!!" To which I usually reply "Don't worry, I'll get another this weekend."
Other than my bibs, there are 2 towels- 1 is from the Air Force Marathon in Dayton, OH-- GREAT race! The second I received when I won the Dances with Dirt marathon in Baraboo, along with a Dances with Dirt gym bag, and a few other goodies. Very cool
Between the towels, on the left, there is also a picture of MB and I after the 2009 Flying Pig Marathon, holding our medals up!
IR (Injury Report): Went to our on-site clinic at work. The Dr. took a look at it and said I either have:
OptionA: a small tendon tear where it meets the heel bone-- not sure which tendon, the pain is right around the achilles/whatever tendon runs on the inside and attaches where the achilles attaches as well... orrr something.
Option B: I have a small fracture on the inner-top side of my heel bone.
I explained that I have only a month til my next race and I have to be running within the 2 weeks before that. So we agreed to 1 week off from running with a compression sock thing and icing like a mofo. If it still hurts in a week--- I'm going in for Xrays. :( Let's hope its just a little tweak and will get better within the week!
Hope you're all having a wonderful Thursday and happy early Friday!!!!
