I haven't blog for about 2 weeks so here's the update... I am planning on running SG but I will be taking it mile by mile and just see how it goes, my hip and groin are feeling pretty good for the most part, I hiked up in back of Loafer mountian for 3 days chasing big bucks and they both felt pretty good... I think we hiked a total of 18 miles in 3 days at about 8,000 feet, very steep, so it was a pretty good workout;-) After getting home on Thursday I wasn't even sore so I feel like I'm in pretty good shape, I seemed to waiting on my younger fellow hunters who were huffing and puffing bringing up the rear;-)  I'm not planning on running until the marathon, except for maybe some work on the elliptical, so we shall see... I hope to see some of My FRB's while I'm down there in SG, see ya soon.

DNF! Started cramping up at mile 10 and then bowed out on mile 16, I have never not completed a race before, but there was just no way that it was going to happen. My injury didn't really bother me but the lack of training the last couple of months sure took its toll... I don't know what the cramping was all about, I wasn't dehydrated at least it didn't seem that way, but at this point I really don't care. I will be taking a break from running the rest of this month and then I will re-evaluate and see where I go from there, my body really needs a good chance to heal up and then I  will see what I want to do after that... I am a little more bummed than I thought I would be, but I'm sure that will fade with time. I will be taking a break from the blog as well, but I will continue to check in on a few of you from time to time.

Take care.
