Doctor's Orders

Tuesday I had surgery. It was supposed to be minor and relatively pain free. Apparently that last sentence has different definitions for different people. I had incorrectly assumed that I would still be able to run my half marathon on Sunday. I'm considerably disappointed at this point, but I don't really have an recourse. I'm not supposed to run for a week or two. I think I will either run the Grand Rapids or Detroit half marathon. I'm bummed about all of this but I've had a couple days to process it all and I know I'll be fine.

Oh man, so sorry to hear that, Emil. You will be fine and you'll run the next one.

Hey, I had a vasectomy about 5 weeks before my first half. I even ran with stitches.

I hope you get better quick.

Good luck,

Best of luck on your half-marathon. Of course, I hope you'll choose Grand Rapids. Cold microbrew waiting at the finish line!!

and the adventure continues....
