Alright- I am desperate now. I am absolutely terrified of needles yet tomorrow I will head over to an Acupuncturist for a exam. It has been an extremely disappointing year and it isn't looking up. I had some goals and races I really wanted to do but I knew I wouldn't be able to do them without really walking a thin line towards a major injury. It is hard to be competitive and running with an injury like this. In my early years playing soccer I would have taken some NSAIDS with Dr. Pepper and just plodded along. Now- not so much. It is only September and I haven't raced since June. I have run some pretty great training runs but always to limp back home. So 2010? Man, I sure hope so.
Last weekend I was able to get over to Leadville, Colorado and help a good friend with his assault on the Colorado Trail and this weekend I get to share the trail with another very talented runner- Christian Johnson- as he takes on the Wasatch 100 (I just hope I can keep up). It is bitter sweet, last year Wasatch was my first 100 miler and the section I am pacing- Big Water to Brighton- was my "beast". Go get em Christian!!!! And a big ggod Luck to Tom, Kacey, Josh and Corky! Bring it home and enjoy the adventure.
Last night was a very big night for me. I took my 4 year old daughter to get her 1st pair of soccer shin guards and cleats. WOW! Those of you that know me well know that soccer wasn't just a part of my life but actually was my life for along time. Pure passion and my first love. Seeing my 4 year old get all excited just made me so happy. Tonight is her first practice and Saturday her first game. Go get em Aspen- daddy is right here!
