It's probably hard for anyone to forget, but I'm injured. I've talked about it
and pretty much in every comment I leave on all of your wonderful blogs.
To review, I have a stress fracture in the 5th metatarsal of my right foot. I spent 2 weeks in a boot, and then re-visited Dr. Amazing who wants me in the boot for 2 more weeks.

I'm trying so hard to project a good attitude about my situation. I know things could be worse.
But I feel like I'm not being 100% honest with y'all.
I'm upset. I've cried. I've whined. I've prayed.
I just really miss running. I'm sad that I won't get to race on March 17th. I don't even know when I'll get to race again. I want to register for replacement half's but I hesitate because I don't know if I'll be ready.
I miss MY time.
I get pissed off when I see people running while I'm driving.
So you see, I'm NOT handling this well. I am still motivated to sweat, but it's not the same.
And then there is the fear. The fear of getting injured again when I can run again. I don't want running to ever be taken away from me again. How do I prevent this? What did I do wrong?
I'm not asking for y'all to pity me, I just want to be honest. Just know that I'm working on it. Everyday is one step closer to putting on my running shoes.
In conclusion, don't get injured.
Have you ever sustained a running injury?
How did you handle it?
