Hehe Laurie, DH wants me to train with him for a marathon. I'm personally thinking a half is more within my ability range at this point. But, he's talking a year - 18 months from now, so we'll see. I can train a lot in a year. Maybe even enough to run a full Mary. DH and I both want to do the Bataan Death March Memorial marathon in White Sands, NM. It's held every March, so we'd have over a year to train for it. There's an option that I think DH wants to do where you march (run) a 15.2 mile course instead of 26.2, but you can carry a 50-80lb pack on your back as part of the memorial. They have veterans of the March there to be honored every year. Apparently it's rough, but very moving. Anyhow, I digress.

JayEll - Apparently my injury happened from running over some extremely uneven, rocky terrain and it bruised my tendon. I just got new (professionally fitted) running shoes not too long ago, but they definitely aren't trail running shoes. They're not meant to hold up to what I was running on. Now I know, I guess.

Thanks for the well wishes all, things are already feeling better today.
