          Muddling through

            I wouldn't write off the race just yet. Three weeks is a lot of time and you'd be tapering anyway. You fitness isn't the question, but whether you can run pain free and not do any damage. Take it day by day as the healing progresses.

            Can I say I told you so?

            2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race


              Can I say I told you so?


              I think it was my healing vibes to him that did it. Big grin
