Life as a Former Runner

This is having a negative affect on my self esteem!  I saw runners tonight after work and I felt so jealous!  I saw one girl with a camelback and wondered how long she was running if she needed a camelback - and I speculated that is must be many, many miles.

My sciatica is somewhat better.  I hope to be back running by this time next week.  I needed a break to appreciate how much I love to run.  I miss it - bad.  But it took until today to even miss it.  I was so fried.

Tomorrow I am volunteering at the expo for the Colfax Marathon.  Last year, I was getting ready to run my first half-marathon.  I was so excited.  It was such a great experience for me.  I hope working at the "late registration" table will rekindle my excitement for the events.  

Wishes for great races for everyone racing this weekend.

I know how your feeling. I am doing no running right now due to a little knee pain. Because I have so many important races planned, I am taking time off of running until it is better. I really wanted to run tomorrow, but stretching tonight I still had a little pain

I think the same thing when I see people with fuel belts and camelbacks.

Glad to hear you're feeling better. Enjoy the expo this weekend.

I think that is the exact reason that we need breaks from time to time! I am glad you are feeling better!

I've been mostly a non runner for two weeks now. Ick!

It is nice that you are going to volunteer at Colfax. Volunteers ROCK!!
