Tomorrow is race day

Tomorrow is the Chilly Half Marathon that I have been spending the winter training for.  Most of this has been on my treadmill as we have had an unusually frigidly cold and very long and snowy winter. snow

My goal was just to beat my time from the Scotia Half Marathon and it still is but as my luck would have it I got injured 2 weeks ago.  Just as I did 3 weeks prior to Scotia.  This is different though as it is not my IT band but my second toe.  Who knew a little toe could give you so much grief.  After seeing the doctor and having x rays we ruled out a fracture and went with injury to the tendon.  I have some tape to buddy it up to my third toe and I don’t anticipate any problems running the race tomorrow but I did have to take a lot of extra rest these past 2 weeks to allow the swelling to come down.  Hopefully that extra rest didn’t hurt my training in any way.  My husband is also doing this race as well and yesterday we went to pick up our race kits.  This race kit included a pretty nice spring jacket in it.  Great swag 🙂 After the race we get a free beer and chili.  I am looking forward to this race as it is apparently flat and fast.  Let’s just hope Mother Nature cooperates as we do have to run along the lakeshore and could really do without the wind.  Fingers crossed.  I can’t wait to come back with my race report.

  1. […] enjoyed this race.  The course was relatively flat.  The jacket provided (seen in my race day post) is really nice.  There were free massages (which we took advantage of) and of course chili […]
