You're in mile 18 and all you have to do is get to the next water station. Up ahead you see them. The group of happy cheering volunteers handing out half-filled paper cups of water. Only a few more steps and aawwhh! You're there! Take a break! Walk a few minutes! And enjoy the sights and sounds. You deserve it!

Well I missed my workout last night because I started playing on the computer and before I knew, it was bedtime. I just was not in the mood to work out anyway. So tonight I made it a point to get into my running clothes before I even thought of sitting down. It was drizzling a little when I started out and everything was going well until...shin splints! Now I haven't had a dose of those in a long time. Couldn't figure out what was causing them. Wasn't the shoes because I just ran in them on Saturday with no problems. So I stretched some more and trudge on. Mile one down - no better. Took a walk break and rubbed them a little. Mile two - a little better. Then for some strange reason in mile three I started favoring my left leg. RUN OVER! 3.37 miles done so not a total loss, but not what I wanted to do today. Icing the shins now - brrrgghhh!
