My left foot has been pretty sore. Not sure if it is a plantar fascia type thing, but I think I won't do any hard running until it is feeling better. No sense in pushing hard to early. My Mom offered me her extra bike and I think I will take her up on it and do some cross training. I have been wanting to do better with cross training anyway.
I love the medal from the Missoula Marathon. I would have to say it is my most favorite medal ever.
I walked around work yesterday thinking
"I am a marathon runner. I don't "just" run half marathons, I have run a MARATHON. 26.2 miles. Twenty-six point two."
Speaking of work everyone was so great and there were signs on the lounge door congratulating me on my marathon. I love my co-workers :) even if some of them were making fun of the way I was getting out of chairs and hobbling around.
I haven't experienced any post marathon blues, but maybe that is because I have Hood to Coast coming up in August and other races this fall to look forward to. My son will start kindergarten in 6 weeks and I will leave for Hood to Coast the day after he starts school. Time is flying by!
There is a half marathon here in two weeks that I would like to do and I think I have until the 19th to sign up. I am not going to make any decisions about it until I see how my body is feeling next week. At this point I am leaning towards not doing it since I am having a foot issue. That half marathon is usually a warm one and only the top three in each age group get medals
