I've just found out that someone from the track club received an e-mail from the Nike Women's Marathon/Half Marathon saying that she got in. I'm a little perplexed because notifications were supposed to happen on April 1, and she's not a part of Team In Training or another fund-raising group. I'm hoping I get in. I really, really, really want to go so that I can meet up with my running blog family/friends -- well, provided they get in as well. One of my coworkers even signed up. I guess there's 20,000 spots available and about 30,000 entrants. Yes, I'm getting a little anxious... For real.
I've decided not to attend tomorrow's 14 mile run with the track club. My left quad muscle is still sore. Sure, I could chance running on it, but I'd also like to remain without injury. Sore muscles happen all the time in marathon training, and that's kind of obvious, but a soreness that doesn't go away in a few days needs rest. Instead 0f being hard-headed and ignoring the quad, I'm going to actually listen to the advice I have given to others and REST. This doesn't get my husband off the hook. You know I'm going to set the alarm so he can be up and ready to run tomorrow morning without me. He needs the miles!
