Getting close...

I know I've been MIA for a while. I've been quietly freaking out about the upcoming marathon. My IT band has been acting up pretty good lately. Well, I should say, the tendinitis that flares up when my IT band is causing me problems is causing me trouble. I have yet to run over 16 miles. Last weekend I was attempting to run an 18 miler, and had to stop after 13 because my knee was hurting too much. I'm a little bit worried at this point. The race is so close now. I'll just continue to slowly freak out as the days tick by...

I've got a stupid IT band too. Good luck with it. Take it easy. Don't hurt it too much and take yourself out of the race before it's started.

Well its a good thing you've been quietly freaking out cause we don't need that kind of negativity around here. Just kidding! I'm the loudest freaker outer there is! Seriously though...I'm sure you'll be just fine! Take care of yourself! When is the race? Which one are you doing again?

i'm going to attempt chicago on oct 12th.

at this point, i'm just playing it by ear, doing as much as i can and hoping to make it to race day. don't know if i'll be able to finish, but i'd like to at least start.

I finished a marathon with It Band, had to stop and stretch every 3 miles. Just, DON'T run through the pain in the meantime. I hate that injury!
