Yes, my shoes are shelved for this year’s Sun Run. After last year’s stellar performance, I am forced this year to sit out. I am finally getting over a nasty sinus cold, and a lovely issue in my left knee related to my quadriceps tendon.
I am disappointed, especially since I’ve been training for the past three months, but at the same time, I know that there’s more glory in not finishing than there is in not starting. I can’t say I didn’t try.
