I should have started this blog in the summer because I felt positive, strong and mighty! Right now my 12 marathons in 12 months has me stressed out on a couple of fronts. First, I feel like my body is breaking down. This is not that surprising because it breaks down frequently but I'm good being optimistic in between break downs. Last Wednesday, I had an injection for plantar fasciitis in my right foot (which is my "good" foot). Almost a week later and a lot of rolling my feel on a golf ball, it feels a lot better. My other complaint is pain where my hamstring attaches to my behind or my groin or both or it's all a manifestation of an upset hip labrum shooting pain. I'm hoping it's a small, nagging thing that calms down on its own while I give my foot two more weeks to heal before I kick things back into high gear.
My other worry is finding donors to get this mission accomplished and provide scholarships to worthy kids. I have survived the first quarter, caught up on grading and entered my grades so now I turn my attention back to fund raising. I do not normally like asking for money and am just shy in general but for this good cause I am going to get out of my comfort zone. I am reminding myself that this is a four-year goal (though I doubt I will continue to run a marathon every month). I will continue to take baby steps to get the word out there and pray that momentum takes over.
