National Running Day 2012

Happy National Running Day!

I’m still recovering from the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon, but I wanted to partake in the experience so I ran two miles on the treadmill. Only two because my ankles are still ridiculously swollen. I’m sitting in bed icing the ankles right now because they are all puffy. That’s part of the reason I’m still wearing my compression sleeves three days after the fact.

But the run went well enough.

And I got nice a sweaty.

I’m still planning on writing my race report from the marathon-turned disaster. I’m just trying to let it all sink in and be a  little more OK with the whole “gone wrong” part of it.

  • I forgot about National Running Day. I’m glad I got my husband out and we ran. I actually ran at Cuesta Park.

    Are you running the San Franciso Marathon at the end of July?

    • Hi Colleen:

      I’m running the 1st Half Marathon. I ran the 2nd Half Marathon last year. The SF Marathon has a “Half it All” Challenge, so doing both halfs (in whatever order) earns a second, bigger medal. Figured I’d go for it. And I get to run across the Golden Gate, which I’ve never done. Are you doing it now that you’re here? (I’m guessing you’re here.)

  • I’m not there yet. I have a little over a week. I haven’t registered but also haven’t been training at all. Running the half might be a better bet for me.

    I will be living in Sunnyvale.

    PS. I think you should have a setting so I can subscribe to comments. I had to check back to see if you replied.
