There really is no turning back now. The Walt Disney World Marathon is next Sunday and I am as ready as I can be.
The past couple of weeks have been rocky to say the least. I was stricken with ITBS, forced to sit out the past two weeks only picking up training this past weekend. The good news, My pace is on target. My IT band is still a bit tender but nothing a shot of cortisone won't temporarily take care of. I am meeting with my doc tomorrow where he will hopefully give me the injection. If not-- I am confident I will finish the race. My knee is tender-- but those two weeks off really made a difference.
My goal time is under 4 hours.
I leave Thursday so I can partake in all of the race weekend festivities which include, from what I am told, a kick ass expo!
After the race-- a well deserved vacation in MIAMI!!!!!!
I will keep you all posted and hope to update through my travels!
