Short and Sweet Sunday (Crossed-Fingers Edition)

This past week, I completed my final days of transition from my injury. I'm still plenty nervous about moving forward, but not because I'm in pain. The stress fracture just really messed with my brain.

My body is actually feeling very strong. Very ready. Very anxious to get back on track.

This is it. This week, starting tomorrow, will be the test to determine if I'll be able to squeeze my final 14 weeks of marathon training into 8. I've rested, yoga-ed and compressed, all weekend.
the saddest part about this photo : my kids didn't even bat an eye when I wore it out the door.
I read about and witnessed my running friends' many miles logged, today and yesterday. My non-running husband even knocked out a few miles! I'm not feeling total jealousy, anymore, though. I'm feeling inspiration and determination. I can DO this, right?!
Just in case, though, cross a couple fingers for me...pretty please.
Thank you.


  1. Everything that could be crossed, is!

    1. thanks! I could totally feel your crossing powers working their magic, too!

  2. I don't doubt for a minute that you will do it - and do it well! (doin' it and doin' it and doin' it well).

    Goooooo Jenn!

    1. I hope there was an awkward dance that accompanied your cheer.
