Well, the Colorado Marathon has come and gone, and in the end I wasn't even able to participate due to a nagging case of posterior shin splints. I don't have any grand insights from the long term training gap this issue has caused me, and I won't be writing a big article the chronicle my disappointment in not being able to run on race day. Instead, I'll simply plan to reload and look for my next opportunity, and as I am able to get back to running regularly, I'll plan to refocus again on some of my goals for short race distances (5K to Half Marathon).
Maybe I can finally get that sub-20 minute 5K goal taken care of? Now that would be something else to wright about.
