Going Too Far....

I like to join in on things. I have a difficult time saying NO! I'm always volunteering for something.

When my niece, Stephanie, asked me to join her in doing a 1/2 marathon to raise money for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, I said yes, warily. I've never done a half marathon, 13.1 miles!

However, Kevin said I've taken joining in too far, when at Easter Stephanie fell and injured her foot, requiring that she post pone marathon training. The next week, I fell, totally on my R knee, twisting and turning and hurting the ligaments/nerves/muscles that go from the knee to hip!

I spent 6 days on crutches, and am still walking with a cane. The thigh muscle is a primary muscle needed for walking/jogging in a marathon, according to my husband. Really???

So my training has been post poned also, I've had to take 'leave' from work, and I'm exasperated at how the house looks. Still haven't finished moving Mom, Chris is running out of time to get out of the apartment, and the family would love a home cooked meal!

Why do I have to always join in??

Just call me Hop-along!

Hey Carrie
I received your photo/postcard in the mail today. It looks fantastic and I'll stick it up on my fridge like you suggested.

Hope your leg heals quickly so you can get back to training and stand on your own two feet again and stop copying Steph....LOL

Sending lots of light and love to help you on your way.
