Not This Year

I did it once and I'll do it again but just not this year.  I'm proud that I accomplished my goal last year but the half marathon isn't in my future for this October. Feeling kinda rough from my colitis flare ups and I cannot take the chance with my body. It's a bummer and I'm upset but being sick has taken a toll on my body and I cannot get deeper in the hole. It's not about failing or giving up; it's about not being able to do something. My physical capabilities are just not there right now. The thought of getting more sick during my training haunts me. I want to push myself more than anything but being smart about it balances out the pros. I wish everyone an unbelievable training season and I'll see you again next year in Detroit!
