Shiprock Marathon

DNS

Did Not Start.

That’s the long and short of it.  I rolled my ankle a couple of days before the race and decided not to make the trip and not to run.  The sprain was not bad but I didn’t think it needed a marathon on it, either. 

I’ve taken the week off and I’m actually glad I didn’t make the trip. 

So, with some time off and a chance to think about the next 5 months of training, I think I may be ready to reboot and get going.

But… it’s my first DNS.  And I don’t like it.

    Go easy on yourself. Running on a sprain could have caused serious injury and could have caused you to have to give up your entire year of training and races. This is a situation in which head must rule heart. You did the smart thing.
