apparently comes in 3s.
After 8 months without any answers, I finally got some big news yesterday. I’ve been hoping for this prison sentence to end or if not end, at least know how much longer I need to serve! Not knowing is very difficult.
The doctor told my coach that I’m a mess.
Not only do I have a tear in my plantar, but I also have a stress fracture in the heel of the same foot.
To add insult to injury, I spilt hot oil on the same foot last week as I was making pasta for Allison and I. The burn got severely infected so now my torn, fractured foot is twice as large as my right foot.
Believe it or not, I am very thankful today! It is such a relief to finally have an idea of when this sentencing will be done! I feel so blessed for everything else I DO have and everything else going on in my life right now.
Although this feels like a 10 foot drop, because my life doesn’t revolve around running, it isn’t a 10 000 foot drop.
I trained very hard the last 3 years to consistently put myself in the top 10 in the country and I had hoped to come into this summer with a body and mind ready to take a shot at the the podium at the Olympic Trials. I haven’t totally lost hope, but with 8 more weeks of non-impact activity, it’s going to have to be epic!
If not this summer, then next.
