I didn't think my Ortho Dr would return my call, but he did this morning.
When I asked him what he thought about me running the marathon tomorrow, this was his reply: "did you really just ask me that??"
Needless to say, he does not think it's a good idea. He said it's too soon, and I would probably be back where I was when all this started- in pain again.
He said he is fine with me easing back into running though, just taking it slow and stopping if it hurts.
So, I will not be running the marathon tomorrow. While I am disappointed, I have no doubt that's the right choice. But I am very happy and excited that I can start running again. A few weeks ago I thought I wouldn't run again until next year, so I am very thankful for that!
I can't wait to cheer on Julie and the rest of the runners tomorrow, and run it myself next year!
