Sleep: 8.5 hours in bed, 945-615. Solid until 4 or so, then woke often. Excitement plus a terrible bed. (With no comforter!)

Body: Upon waking, stiff achey feet, and back to sore left ankle. Fine once I was moving. Until shin & knee pains stopped me, I was having a truly fantastic race. 12:16 pace. Fuck you, body!

Brain: AM: Ready to run. Thinking of how far I have come in 5 months. Grateful. PM: Thinking I am right back to where I was 7 months ago. Hell, 4 years ago. So frustrated. Where do I sign up for amputation?

So so sorry. I know you are probably really beating yourself up right now but once you are done with that...remember how far you came in the past 6 months. Crazy to think you just ran 20 freaking miles on hard trails! You are still Wonder Woman and don't ever forget that!
