You may have noticed my posting lately has been a bit spotty, particularly since I went on vacations. Forgive me, my friends! Training for the NYC Marathon to raise money for the Endo Foundation has more or less obliterated my life (or my productive Sundays at least).
As a thank you for sticking around, I’m sharing my race day playlist! It’s…eclectic. Don’t judge me (too much).
My physical therapist told me this horrifying story about how she trained for a marathon three times — and three times when she reached the peak in her training, after a 20- to 22-mile run, she ended up with stress fractures in her feet until eventually she needed surgery.
Naturally, this story lodged itself in the back of my brain.
When I ran 18 miles two weeks ago in my training for the NYC Marathon and the dull ache in my right foot didn’t really ease up after a couple days, I of course convinced myself it was a stress fracture.
