Alright, this is no sympathy post yet it is the real deal in Paia, Maui right now: I’m destroyed. My body hates me. It started with my chubbster lil feet who rebelled first – I would have too – and they wanted to remind me that they were not up for ANYTHING. Like sit.on.your.patoot,Corker. Got it.
I was in bed for 3days. And the evening my feet started to heal, the swelling went down, the infection was healing and my blisters started to dry up….I woke up at 5AM with a cough that screamed “don’t even think about going for a run just because your feet are okay….your lungs are NOT!”. Got it. I’m wheezing and hacking and can only “sleep” sitting upright. This is called day#5 in the hammock. #I’mdestroyed.
My heart and mind were so strong this year, SO! STRONG! They pushed thru every day, woke up every morning and said “I’ve got ya, Girl!”. And guess what, now all of me wants some rest. Maui will do nicely.
All of this resting and sweet recovery has only given me one thing: time to scheme! I am only 6 days outta Kona and let me tell you – 2013 is lookin’ mighty fine. New races, new sponsors (is this for real?!), a new coach (whaaaat!) and some new juicy goals. I’m wildly excited! For now, I will return to the hammock…aloha.
