So here's the plan. I'll still be heading to Nashville on Friday no matter what for Rock N Roll Country Music (Half) Marathon. I've got a great trip planned - why would I want to miss that? I'm planning to complete the half marathon - maybe jogging, maybe walking, who knows. I checked it out, and the course time limit is four hours, so unless it REALLY starts hurting I should be able to at least limp my way to the finish. And if somehow I can't finish, so be it. There's plenty more months to complete my twelve races. I will be there excited that the Challenge has encouraged me to see a city I've always wanted to visit. And if we're lucky, we'll get to share the story of what we're doing and spread some hope to a few people who just might need it.
I've also realized maybe I should take some of my races easier. I have twelve races, right? So maybe some are jogs, while some are still races. My body needs time to heal and recover. The whole point of this is to be doing good things for my mom, not hurt myself. It will not be easy to not give it anything less than 100%, but I will learn. It's just another (awesome!) challenge.
