Well, I have made the decision after trying to run today, I have to drop out of the half marathon on Saturday. I am SO sad and bummed. I have worked so hard and put my whole summer into training for it. I have had some HUGE bumps along the way and now I have hit a wall that there is no matter what I do, I can't get healthy by Saturday. I know this is just another sob story and wa wa wa... but really it kills me to "give up". I am not a quitter. I can no longer meet my goal for 2011. I can no longer do what I fell in love with this summer. . . So long running shoes, we will test you out in a few weeks!
