It is only 8 weeks until the marathon.
After a bad case of tendinitis this summer, I recovered.
Then, a month ago, I came down with pnemonia.
I thought I'd recovered, but turns out I am still left struggling with a bronchitis.
The last few times I have ran, I end up in a coughing fit for an hour afterward.
I've finally accepted that there is no way I can get back on track and be ready by January.
I will not run the marathon this year.
However, I am in for next year. It seems more fitting to run at 35 and in the year 2010 anyway! I have come to love, love, love running and there is no way I am ready to give it up!
