Shhhh… You Don't Know Me

I’m seriously considering jamming on the Sun Run.  It’s ridiculous how much pain I’m in with my stupid hip bursitis.  Walking a 10k is not in my best interest.  I know this, but still I struggle.  I know that it would put me in severe pain.  I know that to “heal” my bursitis I need to do NOTHING for two months.  Then work the muscles around it, to strengthen it, then ease my way back up to walking, and maybe, if no pain, running.  The whole process could take up to a year.

But I keep thinking I have to do this Sun Run.  No reason.  Just that I committed to it, and I do it every year.  My heart breaks at the thought of the end of an era and the end of a streak… how will I get past it?  How will I be okay NOT doing it?

It’s a fail.  I know, I know, it’s not my fault, but it’s still a fail to me.



  1. I share your pain. Literally. Mine acts up, too, and it frustrates me. My mind wants to be doing so much more than my body is letting it some days.

    But, we are all striving to be healthy, right? And being healthy is also listening to our bodies. I know it seems like a fail, but there is always next year. Take care of you!

    • I saw your pic the other day with the thumbs down because your hip was acting up. You and me both, babe.

      I am doing my best to just rest it, icing it, too. I try not to take pain meds, as I avoid putting things like that in my body as much as possible.
