Not exactly taking care of my ankle as if it were one of my athlete's ankles! But that's not why I dropped out of the race...just didn't feel like running it so I had to bail early or be stuck doing the whole thing- or more than I wanted to. Everyone around me was so excited to be there and happy with an 8:50 (I've heard it was long, but still) first mile. I decided I wasn't having fun like I should be and got out of there. Funny thing is when I waited for the crowd to pass and went running int he other direction I felt pretty good! I think I was relieved I made a decision and went with it. It was fun getting back in time to see the boys finish.
I do have to work on the ankle more- swelling has been up because I can't seem to sit still - or worse I am sitting to much! The waters of putney help though.
I don't plan on racing again until Pisgah - just not having fun right now. Not even motivated enough to make a plan for next week, but at least there are pictures! It's a process and I love it!
