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.
