Well...today was supposed to be the day that Greg and I ran 13.1 Dallas with team World Vision. Sadly, we had to make the decision to forgo the race due to unforeseen injuries. I'm heartbroken. I have been training for this race since February. However, if I want to be able to run any time in the near future, I need to take care of my body, and running 13.1 miles on an injured knee was a risk that I could not afford to take.
I am scheduling a doctor's visit next week to get my knee examined so that I can *hopefully* lace up my running shoes again and maybe run a half in December/January.
Have you ever had to make the decision to back out of a race?
How did you cope with your decision?
